A widow is crying for justice after she was evicted from a family residence at Rainbow Estate in Nyali Constituency, Mombasa County through alleged fake court documents.

Emmy Andisi Agano has been reportedly living at a neighbour's servant quarter after being evicted from her family bungalow which is alleged to cost Ksh30 million.

She said she is living a miserable life and wants justice to prevail, after being forcefully evicted by hired goons under the supervision of regular police officers.

"Up to now I wonder how I was evicted under unclear circumstances and without a notice or court papers served to me," she lamented.

Emmy insisted she was evicted from the family residence without due process being followed.

She narrated her ordeal accompanied by the Kenya Legal Defense Fund (KE) Programme Director, Martin Oduogi, to serve Abdelhad Ahmed Alhassan, at the ongoing renovation site in Nyali Constituency, Mombasa County.

The widow said the house belonged to her late husband, Nahashon Juma Agango, who died with claims the house had been sold without her being notified.

Emmy confirmed her husband died 13 years ago and was left with children who she has been educating on her own.

She pointed out her effort to put a caveat, after being evicted fell on deaf ears, with allegations the files at the local Land Ministry had been interfered with.

"There is a conspiracy between land officials and the tycoon, who allegedly bought our family house through dubious means," she added.

The bitter widow clarified that the house was sold after the death of her husband in 2007.

Emmy said she was evicted by over thirty hired goons under police supervision, adding that the police declined to comment when she went to the Nyali Police Station to inquire whether they were aware of the eviction.

She lamented she was mishandled throughout the day from morning to evening.

"When the deceased passed on he never left a will behind, but only the title deed of the house and six children," she said.

On his part, the KE Programme Director, said they have established the widow was legally married to the deceased.

He condemned the inhumane manner in which the eviction was carried out, which he said was suspicious.

"In traditional culture the wife normally takes over the responsibility of a house when the husband dies," he pointed out.

The KE Boss said the documents of the purported succession of the deceased's two children were fake.

Oduogi pointed out the death certificate which was used is fake as it does not appear in the court registry.

He pointed out that worse still the title deed used to transact the succession, does not appear in the court registry.

"We wish to appeal to the relevant government bodies to carry out investigations to establish allegations of fraud," he said.
