A Nakuru judge was today on the spotlight after a petitioner accused her of impropriety concerning the manner in which she handled a land case.
The petitioner, Jackson Kamau, who is a businessman in Nakuru, now wants Lady Justice Janet Mulwa to disqualify herself from the case over what he termed us unfair judicial practice. He has already filed a suit in court.
Kamau, who is facing eviction from a 2-acre piece of land in Nakuru worth Sh50 million said he had acquired a loan from housing finance which he delayed in paying and his property was taken over by Housing Corporation of Kenya.
He has also sued the corporation and the land district registrar over illegal auction of his land despite a court order.
According to Kamau, after the loan was fully paid the corporation overstayed on his land and later colluded with the lands registrar’s office to sell the land on grounds that they were settling the loan making him to move to court to block the sale.
“I had borrowed a loan from housing finance and I delayed in paying so the corporation took over until the debt was settled, after the loan was fully paid I was surprised that my land was being sold to another party,” he said.
According to him the court blocked the corporation from selling the land but they ignored the court orders making him to instigate contempt proceedings against them before the justice Janet Mulwa.
