Jordan Kinyera was only 6 years old when his dad lost his land in a legal dispute.
He has finally won their family land back after he became a lawyer!
He went through 18 years of education and legal training before taking on the case. The High Court gave a final judgment which ruled in his family’s favor.
Speaking to BBC Newsday, Mr. Kinera said the loss of their land when he was young had changed his life.
“I made the decision to become a lawyer later in life but much of it was inspired by events I grew up witnessing, the circumstances and frustrations my family went through during the trial and how it affected us,” he expressed.
His dad was sued by neighbors after a land dispute in 1996 and the case dragged on in court for over 20 years.
“My dad was retired, so he didn’t have a lot of resources. He wasn’t earning at that time. He was desperate and there is something dehumanising about being in a desperate situation and not being able to do something about it. That is what inspired me the most.”
He also told the BBC that he was happy for his dad, who he says hasn’t planted any seed in 23 years.
“Justice delayed is justice denied. My father is 82 years and he can’t do much with the land now. It’s up to us children to pick up from where he left.”
