Police will continue guarding land belonging to Bandari Sacco to keep squatters off. High Court judge Anne Omolo said the land should not be occupied until a dispute between the squatters and members of the sacco was resolved.

The judge also stopped the building of a perimeter wall around the 60-acre property belonging to over 16,000 sacco members.

Representing the squatters, lawyer SM Kimani applied for the order after a December 4 order allowed construction of the wall.

The squatters have laid claim to the property but the sacco members insist they are the rightful owners.
