Coast residents get title deeds

30 August 2013, 13:16 Jabar Abdul

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday issued a total of 60,000 title deeds to coastal land owners which had been earlier opposed by region leaders.

The six governors whom have been against President Uhuru’s project of issuing land title deeds, each received a box full of title deeds.

Uhuru was accompanied with his Deputy President Willam Ruto, land secretary Charity Ngilu, Rwanda president Paul Kagame, Uganda’s Yoweri Museveni among others.

Before 10.00am the title deeds were surrendered to all coastal governors who were in attendance.

Later the President was accompanied by all who attended to Mombasa state house in the early morning then on to Mombasa’s Bomani Agricultural Show Ground.

A number of residents who were unhappy with the president's move of issuing title deeds and who voted for CORD during the March General Election, took to the streets of Mombasa, sad as others proceeded to the show ground which was opened officially by President Uhuru, and will run through Sunday.

Residents were heard saying if the deeds will favor any community they will not be received. So far the report about the land and who will be awarded the deeds remains with the six governors until the boxes are unsealed.
