Kenya’s Former President Ordered by Court to Pay $10.05m Fine for Seizing of lands belonging to a widow

The former president of Kenya Daniel Arap Moi was ordered by the court to pay 1.06bn shillings ($10.5m; £8.2m) in compensation to a widow for illegally seizing her land.  

President Moi transferred to himself 53 acres of land belonging to the widow called, Susan Cheburet Chelugui, the judge ruled. The land was illegally grabbed 36 years ago but only transferred to Mr Moi’s name in 2007. 

 The former president, who remains Kenya’s longest-serving leader, was accused by Ms Chelugui and her son David Chelugui of transferring their family land into his name two years after Ms Chelugui’s husband passed away.


Moi is then said to have sold the land to Rai Plywood Limited, a timber firm, the BBC’s Mercy Juma reports from Nairobi. Rai Plywood Limited told the judge that it had bought the land from Moi in 2007 after thorough legal checks.  

However, Moi was unable to provide the court with a proof of how he came to possess the land, our correspondent says. Judge Anthony Ombwayo said Mr Moi had behaved in a way that was “unconstitutional, irregular, unprocedural” and “tainted”.

“Just like HIV, coronavirus may never go away” – WHO chief says

“Just like HIV, coronavirus may never go away” – WHO chief says

As people around the world wonder when the coronavirus might go away, a World Health Organization (WHO) chief says there is every chance the virus might not disappear, just like HIV.

The World Health Organization warned Wednesday that the new virus, which has infected 4.3 million people worldwide, may become endemic, just like the HIV virus, and that people may have to learn to live with it.

“Just like HIV, coronavirus may never go away” – WHO chief says

HIV/AIDS was first clinically observed in 1981 in the United States and almost 40 years after, no vaccine or cure has been developed for the virus which has so far killed nearly a million people.

Mike Ryan, the Executive director of the World Health Organization health emergency program, made this known while speaking in an online briefing today May 13.


He said the virus may just become one of the known viruses that kills people annually around the world.

“This virus just may become another endemic virus in our communities and this virus may never go away. HIV hasn’t gone away. I’m not comparing the two diseases but I think it is important that we’re realistic. I don’t think anyone can predict when or if this disease will disappear.

I think there are no promises in this and there are no dates. This disease may settle into a long problem, or it may not be” Ryan said

About 100 organizations worldwide are working on developing a coronavirus vaccine. Even if they find one that works, containing the virus will take a “massive effort,” the WHO official said.

Meanwhile, the California-based Gilead drug company has reached agreements with several companies to make its antiviral drug Veklury, the brand name of remdesivir, available in 127 countries to help treat COVID-19.
