Land conflict in Gilgil

04 April 2012, 14:45 Steve Wambugu

Squatters living on a former Agriculture Development Corporation farm in Kiambogo area of Gilgil district have asked the provincial administration to act out against cases of incitement.

The squatters who trekked from Kongasis to the Rift Valley provincial headquarters in Nakuru to register their complaints noted that several civic leaders led by two councillors and two village elders had taken to inciting the squatter population of more than 7,000 in the area to rebel against the local administration.

The incensed squatters alleged that the four were after political interests and called on them to desist from using the issue of the farm to incite residents.

Two weeks ago, councillor Jane Naseya and local elder Sikona Ole Kupele had accused another politician Peter Ole Sono of alienating the land and selling it off to private investors, they had warned would fuel conflict in the area.

However, a group of squatters who sought a meeting with Central Rift regional commissioner Amos Gatheca in turn accused the councillor of inciting squatters to attack surveyors on the farm.

They said that Sono who is also the Nakuru County ODM chairman was diligently overseeing the subdivision of the farm amongst the legitimate squatters and had just completed the first phase where more than 3 had been sold
