A 100 year-old Kenyan woman is serving jail time for disobeying a court order in an 18 year-old land disagreement.

Ngima Gakoromo, along with her two sons, was sent to prison last week for contempt of court.

The three disregarded a court order to give out two acres to Justa Wawira who had been demanding a share of the family’s four acres. Gakoromo also absconded subsequent hearings.

The two families are not related and Wawira’s father is said to have leased part of the land.

The grandmother was ordered to pay a fine of Sh100,00 or serve time for three months. One of her younger sons is calling for a review into the case citing that his mother is too old to serve jail time.
