KANU officials irked by court ruling over party land grabbing saga

KANU Nominated Senator and party officials are irked by court ruling over the former ruling party land grabbing saga in Isiolo town.

Senator Abshiro Halake said the party would in the next seven days appeal against a court ruling that dismissed representation of the party in the case by new advocates adding that she suspected foul play.

Halake said in a conference that party members were dismayed when the court, in its Friday’s ruling, claimed it was not notified of change of advocates and dismissed them on grounds they were not properly on record.

The Senator disclosed that KANU filed an application seeking to be granted leave to change advocates on May 15, 2018.

The application was filed in court with notice of change of advocates where documents were assessed and requisite court fees paid on May 16, 2018 at Isiolo Court.

She said the matter had come up in court in the said application six times, being four hearings and two mentions where the issue of representation never came up.

‘In fact in his ruling, the magistrate has not dealt with the merits of the applications and the main issues canvassed by the parties,” she complained.

Former KANU Isiolo branch chairman Abdulahi Halkano and the current party secretary Jarso Huka called for justice in the case of party land grabbing which started in 2012.
