A businessman in Mombasa has sued the Government for invading his prime plot in Changamwe to build houses.
The businessman, who is the managing director of Patria Properties, says on March 5, 2010, employees of Ministry of Public Works took charge of the property against his wish.
He said efforts to get rid of the Provincial Administration from the plot hit a snag forcing him to seek protection of the court.
“I am the registered owner of LR No. MN/VI/3835 in Mombasa municipality with a lease of 99 years,” said Doshi.
“The construction of the said structures is now complete and the same have been occupied by Administration Police,” said Doshi.
He says their continued stay on the plot was depriving him of enjoyment of his property, which made him suffer serious losses.
“The Provincial Administration entered my land without permission and commenced construction without my consent,” said Doshi.
He is seeking compensation if the court cannot order for the eviction.
