This was followed by some people who started to fence off some part of his land.

This raised public uproar with Kenyans questioning why the old man was being put on carffs as if he was a criminal. Today the Judiciary has finally broken it's silence over the matter saying that their attention has been drawn over allegations that it's also facilitating land grabbing.
