28, Dec 2014

A group claiming ownership of the disputed 702 acre Mengo farm in Trans Nzoia County has stepped up its claim, a day after six people were killed by locals. The locals claimed they killed the six suspected raiders after they began torching their houses in an attempt to evict them from the disputed piece of land. But now members of the Mengo farm ltd say they bought the land from white settlers in 1964 and later leased it to a company for a ten-year period in 1975.after a 15 year court battle, they say they secured a court order for eviction of the current squatters but the residents have refused to leave.
