NLC probing grabbed school land

16 January 2015, 19:16 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – The National Land Commission (NLC) is investigating claims that a 150-acre piece of land belonging to Kenyatta University has been grabbed by a private developer.

The move by NLC to probe the matter follows the university’s written request to the commission seeking its help to recover the said piece of land.

“The Chairman of the Commission, Dr. Muhammad A. Swazuri, upon receiving a complaint from Kenyatta University, about alleged grabbing of 150 acres University land by yet another private developer, visited the site as a first step towards establishing the propriety of the said land," NLC said in a statement.

“This is to affirm the independence of the Commission in execution of its functions under the Constitution, the National Land Commission Act or any other written Law. The Commission shall always execute its mandate without fear or favour,” it added.

The statement further stated that the Commission is also probing the alleged grabbing of Lang’ata Primary School’s playground by another private developer who wants to set up a hotel.

The Commission has called on the public to be vigilant by raising an alert to NLC regarding any cases of public land being grabbed for immediate intervention.

NLC is constitutionally mandated to manage Public Land on behalf of both the National and County governments, independently conduct investigations on its own findings or upon any complaints of grabbed land, probe into both present and historical land injustices, and provide recommendations to the government for appropriate action to be taken.
