14 June 2012, 13:22
Kenya’s independence party KANU has mandated its Interim Executive officer to tour Laikipia County with an aim of verifying documents of all the properties it owns.
The party’s IEO David Koskey has been in Nanyuki for the past two weeks to oversee properties worth more than Sh30 million in the county, which some of them are believed to have been grabbed by some individuals.
Mr. Koskey told journalists today that the party has a more than Sh4 million debts over the issue adding that some cases are proceeding in court.
The IEO gave a strict warning to people who are mishandling its properties saying that their party’s new constitution gives them the right to take a severe action against them.
“As a party, we are trying to refurbish all our assets as the next general elections encroach. We have always been independent in terms of campaigns and that’s why we want to keep our house in order”, said Mr. Koskey.
He adds that the properties include business malls, rental houses and plots.
Mr. Koskey further continued that he has been mandated by the party’s Secretary General Nick Salat to tour all parts of Laikipia to ensure that the properties are well protected and those individuals involved in any fraud are brought to book.
