What you need to know:

  • Fresh details by the Chief Lands Registrar F.K. Orioki paint a picture of duplicity by government officials and suggests that only the Director of Survey can give the true position on the matter.
  • According to the source, Mr Moi had transferred LR No 12422/19 to Maestro Connections but had never transacted LR No 12422/18 which is adjacent to the contested piece.
  • The Lands ministry has traced the history of the contested land to 1979, barely a year after President Moi took over power.
  • Besides the legal tussles, students and lecturers at USIU-A held a peaceful demonstration on Wednesday last week to pressure the government to protect their property.

Mystery surrounding the prime piece of land being claimed by former President Daniel arap Moi and the United States International University-Africa (USIU) has deepened after official documents showed that the property had two title deeds, two survey plans and two separate deed plans.
