Squatters risk eviction from controversial land in Mtwapa

Over 1000 squatters from Maweni, Mtwapa in Kilifi County are living in fear of possible eviction from their 161 acre piece of land.

The squatters are accusing Powerful tycoons of colluding with officials from the Ministry of Lands office to grab the land adding that efforts to secure title deeds have remained futile.

They are now calling on the President to help them resolve the dispute.

Led by Kilifi South MP Ken Chonga, the legislator accused the Ministry of lands officials of conspiring with some businessmen in denying squatters at the controversial Kwa Mwaisaka land in Maweni, Mtwapa title deeds even after the president had promised them the deeds.

The controversial 161 acre piece of land which is said to be owned by former Permanent Secretary Philomena Mwaisaka was awarded to the squatters by a court ruling back in 2013 to be subdivided to the over 1,000 squatters.

Early this year surveyors from the ministry of lands visited the controversial land and subdivided the land awaiting processing of the title deeds.

Margret Luvuno Kombo one of the Maweni squatters says the court ruling gave them hope that all will be well but things are not turning out they expected.

They are now left to wonder why the land officials involved are playing to the tune of the tycoons at the expense of the poor residents who are fighting for what is rightfully theirs.
