A Kirinyaga woman has gone to court seeking to obtain orders against her 97-year-old mother in a matter involving a commercial building at Baricho Market in Kirinyaga County.
The woman, Mary Nguru, is attempting to prevent their mother, Sabena Wairimu, from entering the building. Sabena claims that her daughter is harassing her tenants.
Nguru claims ownership of the property and has been paying water and electricity bills in a sworn affidavit.
Sabena Wairimu,Nguru’s mother insists the property does not belong to her daughter and is in the process of succession from her late husband Cyprian Kinyanjui.
“I wish to reiterate that the suit property does not belong to the plaintiff and falls within the estate of my deceased husband, which estate is subject to the process of succession,” the 97-year-old stated.
Nguru, on the other hand, claimed she had suffered losses as a result of the respondents issuing eviction notices to some tenants and vandalizing building amenities. She asked the court to grant her application, claiming that the respondents’ actions were illegal.
“I stand to suffer irreparable loss and damages if the defendants are not hereby restricted,” Nguru told the court.
On April 20, Nguru struggled to keep crowds at bay who had gathered to watch the battle for the property.
Senior Principal Magistrate David Ireri granted the application and scheduled the case for May 11.
