The parties herein are brothers and their dispute is in respect of land reference No. NYANDARUA/MELANGINE/1631, which according to the applicant is held in trust for him by the respondent.

His application is supported by his affidavit sworn on 22nd February 2013. It is opposed by the respondent by way of the replying affidavit sworn on 4th July 2013.
