Two families to get Ksh 8B after land was grabbed

The Eldoret Law Court has ordered the Kenya Pipeline Company and the Kenya Ports Authority to pay Ksh 8 billion to a family after they were found guilty of grabbing their land.

Justice Antony Ombwa ordered the two companies to pay the families of Nathan Tirop and Ezekiel Kiprop the money after they took the land 30 years ago.

The two families filed the case in the year 1988 demanding for compensation from the Government after their land was taken without their consent.

The land in question is 1,150 ha located in Eldoret town along the Eldoret-Uganda Road in Uasin Gishu County. The land is owned by several individuals of whom the court said they are not the legal owners.
