In Summary

  • Mrs. Saitoti has blocked an access road linking Mzima Springs Road to Oleguruone Avenue using a fence surrounding her land.
  • Under a certificate of urgency, the complainants claim that Margaret Saitoti has extended the fence on her property to a land that used to belong to Kenya Power but is now public property.

Margaret Saitoti, the widow of the late Minister for Internal Security George Saitoti has been sued by two lobby groups for allegedly blocking a road in Lavington, Nairobi.

In their petition filed at the Milimani Law Courts on Monday, the two groups; Ukweli Usemwe and Uzalendo, together with Joseph Gitonga, claim that Mrs. Saitoti has blocked an access road linking Mzima Springs Road to Oleguruone Avenue using a fence surrounding her land.

Under a certificate of urgency, the complainants claim that Margaret Saitoti has extended the fence on her property to a land that used to belong to Kenya Power but is now public property.

They argue that if the matter is not heard urgently, then the public might lose the land because she is in the process of acquiring it.

“Pending hearing and determination of the case, the petitioners seek orders compelling the respondent to unblock the road,” reads court papers.
