A foreign investor has filed an application in the High Court seeking to have Chief David Nyandoro Lands Register found in contempt of orders that allowed him to be given a title deed for his Muthaiga property worth Sh400 million in Nairobi County.

In court papers filed at Milimani High Court, Yon, through his lawyer Lawrence Nyangito, says he first moved to court on October 4, 2023, after the chief land registrar, who is the contemnor, unlawfully detained and declined to release his title deed number Nairobi/Block 189/925 L.R. No. 27/64.

He had sought the conversation process, and immediately after the procedure was concluded, the land registrar declined for no apparent reason to release the applicant’s title deed.

On April 9, 2024, the lawyer says that when the parties appeared before the Honourable Court, the Honourable Attorney General representing the land registrar/contemnor indicated that they did not wish to oppose the applicants’ Notice of Motion dated October 4, 2023, and that further they were agreeable to have the subject property released to his client.

He states that the court granted an order in respect to the Applicant’s Notice of Motion dated October 4, 2023, directing the Chief Land Registrar, the 2nd Respondent herein, to release the Applicant’s title deed Nairobi/Block 189/925 L.R. no. 27/64.

On April 12, 2024, Nyangito says he wrote a letter and attached the court order that he served upon the 2nd respondent/contemnor.

In the said letter, we gave the second respondent/contemnor a timeline of three days to comply with the Honourable Court order.

“Despite doing so and making several follow-ups with the 2nd Respondent/Contemnor, he openly and blatantly rubbished the court orders and refused to abide by and comply as directed,” he argues in court documents.

My client, as a result, has been subjected to great damages, he adds.

Nyangito further says that his client has been subjected to great anxiety and curiosity arising out of the failure of the 2nd respondent/contemnor to release his title deed, and as a result, he has suffered great damages.

“The 2nd respondent/contemnor, who is a senior state officer, should be committed to civil jail since he is not above the law”, he adds.

Nyangito wants the court to further order the seizure and attachment of the 2nd respondent’s properties, and the same be sold to compensate the applicants in terms of damages already suffered arising from his non-compliance with the Honourable Court’s orders.

“Further, upon granting the same, the Honourable Court to proceed and issue an order that the 2nd Respondent/Contemnor is unsuitable and unfit to serve the Government of Kenya in the position of Chief Land Registrar.

Nyangito also wants, upon determining the application, the court to be pleased to order that the contemnor, who is the Chief Land Registrar, be arrested and committed to civil jail for a period not exceeding six months.

The Honourable Court is pleased to further direct that the second respondent’s property be attached and the same be sold to compensate the applicant for damages suffered as a result of the disobedience of the Honourable Court’s order issued on April 11, 2024.

He further wants the court to order and direct that upon the defendant serving civil jail, he is declared unsuitable and unfit to serve in the government service as the Chief Land Registrar. The contempt application hearing is set for June 11 before High Court Judge Angote.
