ODM to Ngilu: We want the real names

23 January 2015, 18:30 William Korir

Nairobi - The Orange Democratic Movement ODM has told Lands CS Charity Ngilu to name the real persons behind land grabbing in the country and not lie to Kenyans.

The party, through Secretary General Ababu Namwamba said Friday that it would not accept the names bandied around by Ngilu a day earlier, as they did not represent the real persons behind the land grabbing incident at a playground belonging to the Langata Road Primary School.

Ababu said that the 4 names presented by Ngilu represented a calculated lie that was meant to dupe Kenyans and hide the real identity of the land grabbers.

" The CS must give us the real names. Kenyans need to know the truth about this saga, not be told blatant lies and we all know that the persons behind this scheme are senior government officials," he said.

Namwamba said that ODM and the CORD coalition would push the Jubilee government to deal with the issue of land grabbing.

" The land grabbing going on in the country is very well orchestrated and is protected to very high levels of the current government," he added.

In a presser Thursday afternoon, Ngilu named the four persons as Madip Singh, Madit Singh, Haban Singh and Kamal Amrish Singh, all directors of the Airport View Housing Company LTD.

Ngilu said that the four were in charge of the fencing of the land belonging to the Langata Road Primary School in Nairobi and added that the fake title deed they had to the land was under the company's name.

Ngilu had promised earlier to name the owners of the grabbed land, saying that she was indebted to Kenyans to provide answers as to why the land had been grabbed.

It is not yet clear what action will be taken on the directors, with the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions DPP entitled to charge them in court on behalf of the people.
