Confusion, mistrust, anger over Kibra title deed promises

09 December 2013, 09:38 Victor Tinto

Nairobi- After long hours of wait, it was apparent president Uhuru Kenyatta would not show up when key government officials left the Kibera DC grounds Sunday afternoon, saying they had taken a lunch break.

Then a few hours later State House spokesman Manoah Esipisu said that the president had not planned to be in Kibera on the material day.

" The president's visit to Kibera were a creation of the media, Esipisu said. It was not on his itinerary at all.

Esipisu's statement brought an angry reaction from the Nubian community members.

" What were all the tents for? The presidential dias? The big numbers of policemen for? Why are they lying to Kenyans and it was obvious the president was coming, Isakh Ahmed a born and bred Kibera Nubian argued.

A few days earlier there were demonstrations in Kibera. Apparently the Nubian community does not deserve the 290 acres they will receive titles for. Every Kibera resident deserves a portion too.

" This process has suddenly been politicized. The truth is that everyone knows the Nubian community has been in Kibera for years, Juma Namaa, who has lived in the area for 30 years said.

Rumours as to why president Kenyatta 'skipped' the event were rife. Some say it was a security issue. Others think he was advised differently about the whole process.

The Nubians don't care. They just want to be treated like normal Kenyans.

" The president handed out title deeds to Coastal residents because he believed they were rightful owners of the land. We want him to check the history books and he will find his answers concerning Kibera, Isakh added.

Tension is already sky high in the area thanks to the proposed title deed handout plus the demonstrations that took place last week and now the no show from the president.

It waits to be seen what step will be taken in the coming days but the sooner the matter is dealt with, the better.
