The High Court has declined to suspend the trial of former Lands minister Amos Kimunya

and instead ruled that the case be expedited.

Kimunya is charged alongside the director of Land Adjudication and Settlement Lillian Njenga and Midlands Ltd and its chairman Junghae Wainaina.

They are facing charges of transferring 25 acres of government land in Nyandarua county nine years ago.

Midlands and Wainaina moved to court seeking to quash their prosecution on grounds that the charges are malicious and meant to deny them the right to acquire property.
