More than 2,000 members of the Maasai community have moved to court seeking to restrain Agricultural Development Corperation (ADC) from evicting them from a piece of land.

Naibor Ajijik Group Ranch accused ADC of trying to disposes them of more than 5,000 acres at Ndabibi in Nakuru County.

The community say the British colonial Government took away the land during the First World War and gave it to Gilbert Colville as a gift for his exploits.

Colville later transferred the parcel of land and registered it under his name. ADC took over the land following his death.

The residents now want the High Court in Nakuru to restrain ADC from selling, transferring or dealing in the property, pending the hearing and determination of the suit.

Justice Roselyn Wendoh will hear the case on August 28. The group vice-chairman Mure Kamaamia and secretary Shadrack Metekei filed the case.
