MP wants white settlers to surrender part of their land

16 April 2015, 09:19 Jackson Okata

Naivasha - Naivasha Member of Parliament, John Kihagi has called on white settlers who own huge chunks of land in his constituency to donate some of it to poor squatters.

Kihagi said that it was disappointing to see that more than 50 years after independence, scores of Kenyans are still squatters in their own country.

Speaking Wednesday afternoon at Naivasha town, Kihagi said that the government should compel the white settlers to give away some of their land to poor Kenyans.

"It doesn't make sense for foreigners own huge chunks of land and they even have space to rear wild animals while poor Kenyans have no place to even put up a pit latrine," said Kihagi.

He added, "The government needs to do what was done in Zimbabwe and South Africa and repossess the land so that Kenyan squatters can be given the land."

The MP said that it was not logical for a few foreigners to own almost three quarters of his constituency while his constituents scramble for the remaining quarter.

"How do the white settlers feel when they see poor people living without a place to call home while they continue keeping lions on huge chunks of land?" he posed.
