Court Extends Orders Barring Mitumba Evictions

The government has been restrained from evicting Mitumba slum dwellers pending court hearing and determination of their case. Lady Justice Mumbi Ngugi extended the restraining orders to enable parties prepare for full inter-partes hearing. She had issued the orders earlier after an application by Benjamine Kaunda Gishemba who is chairman of Mite-bell Welfare Society on behalf of Mitumba slum dwellers.
