REPUBLIC OF KENYA
IN THE ENVIRONMENT AND LAND COURT AT MERU
ELC (O.S) CASE NO. 44 OF 2020
JULIUS MIRITI ITARU.............................................APPLICANT
1. Before me is a notice of motion dated 17.9.2020, brought pursuant to provisions of Section 1A, 1B, 3A and 63 ( e) of the Civil Procedure Act and Order 40 Rule 1 and 2 of the Civil Procedure Rules.
2. The applicant is seeking an order of inhibition in respect of land parcel number Nyambene/Kitheo/1273 until the suit is heard and determined. He is also seeking an order of temporary injunction restraining the defendant, his family members, servants and agents from entering , occupying and using the suit parcel until the case is heard and determined.
3. Despite service, no response has been filed by the respondent. I am therefore inclined to allow the application in the following terms.
1) The prayer for inhibition is allowed in terms of prayer number 3 in the application.
2) The prayer for injunction set out in prayer number 5 is allowed but for a period of ONE YEAR ONLY.
3) The costs of this application shall abide the outcome of the main suit.
DATED, SIGNED AND DELIVERED AT MERU THIS 14TH DAY OF DECEMBER, 2020
HON. LUCY. N. MBUGUA
The date of delivery of this ruling was given via a notice dated 7.12.2020.

They are deemed to have waived compliance with order 21 rule 1 of the Civil Procedure Rules which requires that all judgments and rulings be pronounced in open court.
