He also said that Kenyans should respect public and private property, and warned that such invasions could spark conflicts among residents within the County.
“Land grabbers should be aware that security agencies are keeping a watchful eye over reported cases, and anyone found liable will be dealt with by the law,” the administrator stated.
He reiterated that land grabbing should not be allowed to creep back to the county as it has suffered enough under the yoke of historical land injustices.
He said that security agencies will effectively deal with unscrupulous land dealers, adding that the government does not recognize any “sacred cows” that will not be punished for destruction, trespassing and theft of public and private property.
Marwa also urged the public to report any cases of land grabbing and invasions.
