Honorable justice Isaac Lenaola will be visiting Mabatini village located deep in the Mathare valley tomorrow (18th July 2014 from 10a.m.) to confirm for himself the extent to which Mr. Samuel Ojowa (A slum land lord) has built his 3 massive tenements. This action by the judge was brought about by the hot case filed back in the year 2010 by the Mabatini residents when Mr. Ojowa started forcing out tenants and evicting his adjacent structure owners for his developments. According to Peter Muiruri (the current Mabatini chairman), the slumlord dexterously hijacked the community’s plans to legally acquire the slum-land they had inhabited for over 45years – since the 1970’s.

Destroyed Livelihoods in the Name of Development

History: Emali town seats at the border of Makueni and Kajiado Counties. It has a long history, having started as a market point in the late 1800s. Then, the market was mainly for barter trade among the two communities –Maasai and Kamba- in the adjacent hinterlands. The areas’ central location and flat topography contributed to the location being chosen ideal for doing business. The different communities traded in various commodities essential for survival mainly animal hides, grains and livestock. Traditionally the Kamba community in Makueni County were mainly farmers while the Maasai community were largely pastoralist; this in itself provided a base for exchange (trade) of farm produces and animals/ livestock.
