An Environment and Land court in Eldoret has declined to issue an injunction barring the wife to ex-bodyguard of former President Daniel Moi from accessing a piece of land that she considers their matrimonial asset.
The ex-bodyguard of Moi, namely Stephen Sugut, had gone to court seeking to stop his wife Leah Chepchumba Sugut and their son Simon Sugut from occupying and tilling the 30-acre piece of land situated in Moi’s Bridge area in Uasin Gishu County.
The Judge, Anthony Ombwayo, ordered Mr Sugut to allow his wife and son, whom he had sent packing 15 years ago, to continue living on the piece of land.
Mr Sugut had gone to court seeking to block his wife and child from occupying the land, saying he had separated from Ms Chepchumba a long time ago.
Ms Chepchumba’s lawyer Simion Lilian requested the court to compel Mr Sugut to take full responsibility of his client and son, saying they are still part of Mr Sugut’s family.
