Magarini Salt Base Public Interest Litigation Case


Kituo Cha Sheria conducted a community public forum in Marereni, Kilifi County that deliberated on the Magarini Salt Base Public Interest Litigation Case on 18th of January, 2018. The Magarini Salt Base case is a forced eviction case where Magarini community members accuse the salt firms along the salt mining belt of evicting them with utmost cruelty and without observing standards of human rights to pave way for the building of the salt firms.
The forum brought together the Magarini Community Members, Kubuka Farmers, representatives from the American Jewish World Service (AJWS) and Kituo Cha Sheria. The main objective of the meeting was to brief the Magarini community members on Kituo’s intention to file the case regarding environmental and land issues in the Magarini salt belt in Court.
The meeting also provided an opportunity for AJWS to conduct a photo shoot of the community work done by the Malindi Rights Forum (MRF).
Kituo briefed the forum on the details of the case and also explained to the community the basic contents of the case including how to manage expectations, from prayers made and timelines.
Finally there was also discussion on an audit report by Kenya National Commission on Human Rights Violations. The activity was led by the Coast Regional office coordinator Ms. Annette Mbogoh and programme officers Mr. Zedekiah Adika and Ms. Valarie Ang’awa.
