Land owners query Uhuru's Lamu land revocation order

01 August 2014, 14:43 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Land owners in Lamu have queried the revocation of title deeds in Lamu by president Uhuru Kenyatta, calling the move ill times and dangerous.

The president revoked title deeds to over 500,000 acres of land in the County Thursday, which he insisted were acquired irregularly.

" We have established that between 2011 and 2012, almost 500,000 acres which is about 70 percent of the land within Lamu County available for settlement was alienated to 22 private entities in dubious and corrupt means, he said in his statement.

The land has been registered under 22 companies which have been accused of hogging land in the County and causing divisions among local residents.

But in a rejoinder, some of the landowners claimed that they had been given a raw deal in the process.

Director at the Witu Nyarongo Ranch which owns just over 74,000 acres Rashid Amana claims that the allocation of land to the organization was in order.

" It is unfair that the government has revoked the deeds and this land was not irregularly acquired, he said.

" The records are there and even so, there should have been consultation over the matter, not just decisions made without prior thought, he added.

Local residents though, were happy with the directive.

Juma Muna, a local resident is happy at the directive.

" It think that it is long overdue and that it will go a long way to solving the issues we have had over the years, he added.
