NLC to solve land, settlement disputes before 2017 elections

30 August 2015, 20:54 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - The National Lands Commission (NLC) hopes to solve all land buying and settlement disputes by 2017.

Commission Chairman Mohammed Swazuri said among the problems they hope to solve are the disputes over LAPSSET Project in Lamu, the long-running Waitiki Farm squatter problem in Mombasa, the Oljorai and  KARI land issues in Nakuru and several others in central Kenya.

He said the commission was determined to end the squabbling in land buying companies, some of which had led to bloodletting as in the recent case of Kihiu Mwiri Company where directors have been killed.

He said some of the land buying companies should have been closed up the moment their shareholders got their allotments but the companies were perpetuated by self seekers.

Swazuri was speaking in Nanyuki town after a meeting with local leaders seeking to identify genuine shareholders of various parcels of land.

He pledged to hold a meeting with all stakeholders of disputed lands.

He called for drastic action against land buying companies that had refused to wind up even after serving their purpose.

He added that most of those companies were operating illegally because they did not file annual returns as required by the Companies Act.
