The Kenya African National Union (KANU) to move to the Court of Appeal after losing the KICC land ownership case

The Kenya African National Union (KANU) to move to the Court of Appeal after losing the KICC land ownership case.

KANU has disagreed with the High Court’s ruling on the Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC) land.

In a ruling on Monday, June 3, Justice Jacqueline Mogeni said the KICC land was unlawfully acquired by KANU.

She revoked the title deed issued to KANU and declared that the land belongs to the Ministry of Tourism.

“A declaration that the Ministry of Tourism is the lawful owner of the land and KANU registration is unlawful, illegal, and unconstitutional,” Justice Mogeni ruled.

However, KANU has announced it will move to the Court of Appeal to challenge the High Court ruling.

“The party has already instructed its legal team to file a notice of appeal with immediate effect as the party combs through the substance of the judgment to issue a comprehensive statement in due course,” KANU’s statement read in part.

The Gideon Moi-led party argued that the allocation of the parcel of land was procedurally effected under the previous constitution and therefore it is the legitimate and bona fide owner of the land.

KANU was allocated the land on May 10, 1969, by the commissioner of lands and acquired the title of the land on May 25, 1989.

On February 11, 2003, the Independence Party was kicked out of the land through an executive order by the late Mwai Kibaki.

In 2020, the party moved to the Environment and Land Court seeking to reclaim the premium property.

“We assure our members and supporters that the party will pursue all legal avenues to ensure that justice is served,” KANU added.
