Nakuru county Government has landed in court following a dispute over a land in which a community borehole has been drilled in Bahati Nakuru.

According to an agreement signed between Mukururo and the management committee of Bavuni-Mugwathi water project on 22nd April 2008, the committee was to drill a borehole in Mukururo’s land and supply the same to his Jemus academy free of charge.

However, in unclear circumstances, the project committee went ahead and subdivided Mukururo’s land having off a section of it within which the borehole had been drilled and a title deed for the plot acquired to that effect prompting him to move to court seeking the above order.

According Charles Mucheru Mukururo a director of Jemus academy, he filed a suit against the county government of Nakuru as 4th respondent while Bavuni Mugwathi water project, District land registrar Nakuru and Josphat Nderitu are the 3rd, 2nd and 1st respondents respectively.

Through Odhiambo and Ogutu advocate, Mucheru in his petition argues that his right to own and quietly enjoy his property has been violated by the 1st and 2nd respondent contrary to article 28 of the constitution given that the 4th respondent { county government of Nakuru} has divided his parcel of land } .

Mr. Mukururo is seeking orders to have the land registrar cancel subdivision of Dundori / Mugwathi Block 1/ 1640 Wanyororo A as well as have Josphat Nderitu who was by then the chairman of Bavuni – Mugwathi water project and the county government of Nakuru by themselves or through their agents restrained from entering or interfering with his quiet possession of the said land.

The Nakuru land and environment court certified the matter as urgent and directed the petitioner to serve the respondents with hearing date set for 27th March 2017.
