MALINDI CONSTITUTIONAL PETITION NUMBER 8 of 2013 FIDA KENYA & 3 OTHERS –VS- KAGAA COPERATIVE SOCIETY, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL & NATIONAL LAND COMMISSION

This is a case on women land rights and the historical injustices on land that that have been experienced generally in the Coast and more particularly how it has affected women and the community at large.

This matter was heard and judgment delivered on 14th September, 2016. The Petition was dismissed. The court was of the opinion that allowing the petition as prayed would be inviting the court on a flight of fancy by asking it to find that their ancestors were discriminated against and that the enforcement of the alleged infringed rights should be enforced now. FIDA has filed a notice to appeal.
