Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital is going to the highest court in the land to stake its claim on the land on which its Private Wing, popularly known as ‘amenity’ stands.
The land is in dispute, with the Uasin Gishu Memorial Hospital insisting that in spite of a gazette notice in 1998, the land does not belong to the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital.
A long-running court case between the two institutions led to a ruling at the Court of Appeal ordering MTRH to pay Uasin Gishu Memorial Sh1.7b. Not satisfied with the ruling, MTRH is taking its case to the Supreme Court.
In a report on the controversial land, the Auditor General has expressed fears that MTRH might lose the land to Uasin Gishu Memorial Hospital, and stated that the land might have been encroached upon since the original hospital land seems to have changed.
The Auditor General was also faulting the management for having too many staff – one third – coming from a single community, in contravention of the National Cohesion and Integration Act of 2008.
