“The beneficiaries of the illegal land allocation went to court and filed a suit. The applicants sought to quash the decision contained in the caveat emptor notice declaring a portion of the protected Kiambu Reserve and warning the general public against any purchase thereof,” he stated.
The commission had resolved to investigate the allocation of the forest but did not complete the inquiry as its jurisdiction ended.
