An un-ending legal tussle between Nkama Group Ranch officials and a member they have denied membership registration is back again in court.
The Environment and Land Court in Kajiado, which had earlier compelled the Nkama Group officials to register Jeremiah ole Risa as a member, is on the case again after the officials appealed against the ruling.
In the new development, Risa has rushed to court to restrain the group ranch from disposing of any part of its land until their case is heard and determined.
The case that Risa placed before Lady Justice Christine Ochieng and handled online exparte has considered the plaintiffs’ prayers to restrain the group ranch and its officials from interfering with the land and its documents.
Justice Ochieng basing her ruling on the notice dated June 18 by the plaintiffs placed a temporary injunction restraining Nkama group ranch officials from selling, transferring or leasing 10 parcels of lands namely; KJD/KAPUTEI SOUTH/2247, 1916, 1982, 1981, 2252, 1910, 1991, 2245, 1912 and any other piece of Nkama land should not be divided pending the full hearing and determination of an application filed against them.
The judge gave the defendants 14 days to file and serve their affidavits.
In the ELC case No. 667 of 2017, Risa is fighting recognition as a member of the group ranch owing to the fact his parents were members, and therefore his inheritance of the land property is prequalified.
