Khalwale: Uhuru taking shortcuts

04 August 2014, 18:15 William Korir

Nairobi - Kakamega senator Bonny Khalwale has criticized president Uhuru Kenyatta over his move to cancel title deeds in Lamu, saying he does not have the mandate.

The president last week revoked deeds of just around 500,000 acres of land in Lamu, saying they had been irregularly awarded.

He then went on to name 22 companies that he said owned the said parcels of land.

Khalwale though, insists that the president has overstepped the mark as he does not have the power to make such a decision.

He insists that the National Land Commision NLC should be the one dealing with such issues.

" The president has taken a short-cut, he said Monday in Nairobi.

" The statement he made the other day excited many people but it was unlawful and was wrongfully executed.

" The President simply cannot usurp the powers of the National Land Commission, which is exactly what he has done.

" The Attorney General should have advised him that this is not the old order, he added.

Khalwale insisted that the only way out of matters land in the country lies in the implementation of the Ndungu land report.

" The President must implement the Ndungu and TJRC reports. Is he afraid his family's name is there?

Khalwale then went on to defend Siaya senator James Orengo of allegations he led the illegal allocation.

" Orengo is clean. If anything, he is the one who revoked illegal allocations.
