Advocate James Njuguna of Njuguna and Company Advocates wants Governor Jackson Mandago to face civil jail for disobeying a court order restraining Uasin Gishu County government from evicting a tenant from its plots over rent arrears.
County Secretary Peter Lelei also faces a contempt of court suit for defying orders issued by the Eldoret Judge Justice Sila Munyao. The court had barred them from repossessing land belonging to Kenstern Limited at Kapsoya Estate Eldoret town.
Justice Munyao issued a temporary injunction last year September, 12 2013. Kenstern Limited had obtained the orders in a suit filed by Advocate Njuguna.
Advocate Njuguna has now moved to court seeking to have Governor Mandago and Mr Lelei committed to civil jail for six months for contempt of court.
He has accused the respondents of trespassing into Kenstern limited in November 2013 in the company of police and council askaris and attempted to evict them from the parcel of land.
Advocate Njuguna claims that the rowdy youths who were guarded by armed police officers stole household items and caused damage to property amounting to millions of shilling.
The court is yet to fix hearing of the contempt of court proceeding against Governor Mandago and County Secretary Peter Lelei.
