“The petitioners are personally and on behalf of their community urging the honourable court to be pleased to grant the people occupying the territory formerly known as the Eastern Province of Uganda leave to hold a referendum so as to exercise their right to determination in terms of their rights to nationality, territorial integrity, economic, social and culture as a people,” the petition,seen by The Daily Nation, reads in part.

They have sued the governments of Kenya, Uganda and Britain for demarcating the once united Abaluhya kingdom.

According to the petitioners, the colonial government turned down the demands by the Abaluhya community to have their own kingdom during the Lancaster House Talks in the United Kingdom that preceded Kenya’s Independence in 1963.
