Lamu survey begins

14 August 2014, 23:33 Ken Wekesa

Lamu - The long awaited survey on the controversial five hundred hectares of land in the County commenced on Wednesday with a team of 72 surveyors divided in a group of eight carrying out survey in eight villages.

The director of survey Sesare Baria said they have formed a team of eight teams to handle the first face of the activity in the eight villages.

“The team of surveyor and cartographers will get to work in Mokowe, Mkunumbi,Mapenya,Dambwe,Koreni,Kiongwe and Mpeketoni Township” said Baria who is heading the team in the Survey activities.

The director said the survey process will be conducted in phrases revealing that the second phase of the activity will be carried out on the proposed Swahili settlement villages and centers.

Baria said the Lamu resident have welcomed the move and have cooperated fully with the experts conducting the survey.

He noted that the exercise will be completed earlier than the slated 30 days since the county government has also cooperated with national government in the exercise.

Lamu county executive secretary for lands Amina Masoud said they will make public the teams of those involved in the exercise to build confidence among the people.

She said the county government will provide all the support needed by the team in a bid to make sure the survey is a success in the region.

Baria said that once the survey team completes its work a registration map and land titles will be issued.

The activities hit a second day today since its launch by the cabinet secretary Charity Ngilu in a bid to resolve the ongoing wrangles in Lamu County that has seen over 60 people dead.
