A woman on Wednesday caused a stir at the Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi after a judge adjourned her 15-year-old-case for yet another month.

54-year-old Jacinta Nduta, who was in the company of her daughter Virginia Wamboi, wailed from the Family Division Court on the third floor all the way down to the ground floor; causing a stand still in the process.

Ms. Nduta said her late mother Esther Gathoni left her as the administrator of her 2.5 acre parcel of land.

She added that she was supposed to share the property with her 4 siblings who have since also died, leaving her with all their children.

According to Ms. Nduta, succession case with another person who was allegedly also eyeing the land began in 2004 and ended in her favor in November 2017.

However, before the restriction orders over the land usage were lifted, the judge handling the file got a transfer.

She further stated that, since then, the file has been transferred from one judge to another without the matter coming to a close.

“Most of the time when we go to court, it’s either the judge is not sitting, the file cannot be traced or the advocate representing the other party is not in court,” lamented Ms. Nduta.

The matter was on Monday mentioned before Justice Asenath Ongeri but, since the advocate to the opposite party was not in court, the matter was set for hearing on September 10, 2019.
