Narok Governor Samuel Ole Tunai has cautioned those intending to buy land in the region saying the county has banned transfer of ancestral land.
Speaking in Transmara where he issued more than 600 title deeds to locals, Tunai said the move is informed by the outcry of residents who have been hoodwinked into selling their parcels of land at throw away prices.
He said issuing them with Title deeds is not giving them the right to sell and called on the land registrar not to approve any transfers .
His sentiments were echoed by Narok County commissioner George Natemebeya who called on residents to take the issue of land ownership seriously considering its value.
Natembeya also announced that the disarmament operation will continue and so far security agencies have recovered 41 illegal firearms.
He called on those in possession of unregistered firearms to surrender them voluntarily.
Cases of gun related criminality have been reported in the recent past in Trans Mara Sub- County forcing security agencies to mount an operation to flush out illegal weapons.
