Surveyor denies negligence in land sale drawing Ruto in suit

The surveyor who sub-divided the Uasin Gishu land belonging to a post-election violence victim, and which was irregularly sold to Deputy President-elect William Ruto on Thursday denied being negligent in the transaction. Mr Patrick Opiyo Adera, who was a Ministry of Lands surveyor, said that a search indicated that the land belonged to Ms Dorothy Yator.  In the case, Mr Muteshi accuses Mr Ruto of being part of a scheme to deprive of him of the land, which he says he fled from during the 2008 post-election violence.  Mr Ruto denies the allegation and says that he was cheated into buying the land.
