The proposed building of a multi-million international sports centre in Naivasha will go on after the High Court in Nakuru gave it the green light.
The court had earlier stopped the construction of the proposed Naivasha International Sports and Convention Centre after a group of squatters claimed ownership of the 26-acre piece of land.
However, after partly hearing the petition filed by 25 squatters, Lady Justice Roselyn Wendoh rule that the project should proceed because the petitioners were only interested in four acres of the property.
“I allow the commencement of the international sports complex since it has come out clearly that the petitioners are only interested in a small portion of the suit land,” she said.
She, however, cautioned the Nakuru County and other respondents in the case against interfering with the part of land where the petitioners have been residing.
