Moi Primary school's land grabbed

23 January 2015, 10:40 Almaz Roberts

Nakuru - A public school in Nakuru has called on the government to help them recover their 2-acre piece of land which has been grabbed by private developers.

Moi Primary school, according to a certificate of lease, initially owned 13 acres of land but two acres where the teachers’ quarter’s stood have since been grabbed.

According to Alfred Bogonko, the school chairman, the school has been embroiled in a court tussle with the private developers who allegedly grabbed and erected 13 plots.

However, the 13 plots were revoked as per the gazette notice of November 2010 after the school won the court case.

“Even after the court ruling and gazette notice, the private developers are still living here and have desisted to move. They are very aware that the land belongs to the school but others ironically are still going on with the construction,” Bogonko said.

The grabbed land, according to the school treasurer, Hezborn Aloo used to host the teachers' residence before some of the developers intruded.

“Even the headteacher's residence was finally grabbed by powerful business people and former politicians and the two-acre piece of land fenced off. Currently, there are no teachers residing within the school although we have some pupils who are boarding and cannot get enough security,” Bogonko said.

The school urged the Lands Commision Chairman, Dr Mohammed Swazuri and the Lands Cabinet Secretary Charity Ngilu to look into the matter before it is too late.
