REPUBLIC OF KENYA
IN THE HIGH COURT OF KENYA
AT NAIROBI (MILIMANI COMMERCIAL COURTS)
Bankruptcy Cause 14 of 1984
RE; SILVESTER KURIA KINYANJUI
This is an application by the bankrupt herein Silvester Kuria Kinyanjui for his discharge. The circumstance giving rise to the applications are that the debtor was adjudged bankrupt on 25.11.1985, a Receiving Order against his estate having been made on 14.12.1984. Following the making of the order, investigations were carried out by the Official Receiver which revealed that the debtor had no assets at all. And in view of those facts both the Official Receiver and the only creditor who has appeared in this application have notified the court that they have no objection to the application.
Given the above circumstances, I am of the opinion that it is fair and just especially having regard to the duration of the bankruptcy to grant the application as prayed. Accordingly the application is allowed and the debtor discharged from bankruptcy.
Dated at Nairobi this 17th day of September, 2002
