NLC revokes title deeds on disputed Kipsigis-Maasai boundary

By Juney Karisa

The National Land Commission has revoked all title deeds on the disputed boundary of Kipsigis and Maasai and  nullified title deeds of public utility facilities that are currently been held by individuals.

This comes after renewed violence on the border of the two communities in Narok County which left two people dead and property destroyed last week.

NLC chairman Dr Mohammed Swazuri said they would from Thursday next week start demarcation of the disputed boundary.

Kilgoris MCA Moses Olekoya applauded the move saying it was a major milestone in the area which has never known peace in recent times.

Meanwhile, Swazuri and Coast Regional Coordinator Nelson Marwa are expected to appear before the Parliamentary Committee on Lands over the manner in which they handled the controversial Dunga Unuse land probe in Changamwe Mombasa County.

Over 500 residents are suspected to have been forcefully evicted from their land in 2015 by a private company alleged to have acquired the land, which borders the Port of Mombasa, from the national government.

The affected lot that has since been living as squatters in the area is decrying injustice over alleged land grabbing claims of 5 hectares of land.

The Parliamentary Committee on lands arrived in the area, to also try and resolve the riddle.

Sympathizing with the affected lot, the committee condemned the eviction 16 months ago that saw 5 people injured.

Led by Vice Chair Moses Ole Sakuda the committee says it will summon National Lands Committee chair Mohammed Swazuri and Coast Region Coordinator Nelson Marwa to clarify the issue
