13 September 2012, 11:10
Residents residing and owning land in areas within Kuresoi and Njoro District of Nakuru County will get a reprieve after the Prime Minister Raila Odinga assured them of lifting up of the caveat that had been imposed on the lands.
For decades, land owners have not been able to use the land title in transactions including borrowing of loans from financial institutions.
The lands affected include Mauche Settlement Scheme in the new Njoro district, and Kiptororo, Ndoinet, Tinet-Kapongoi, Sotiki-Tinet, Barao and Bararget in Kuresoi district.
Tinet ward civic leader councilor David Sitienei told News24 in Nakuru after arriving from a delegation of Mau evictees’ leaders meeting with the Prime Minister in Nairobi, that the ban will be lifted in three days time.
“The Prime Minister has assured us that the caveat will be lifted in three days and that Lands Minister James Orengo has been directed to implement the same”, said Sitienei.
Earlier, U.R.P presidential hopeful William Samoei Rutto, when addressing a political rally in Kuresoi had called on the lands minister to lift the caveat saying that it had slowed down economic development of the residents as residents could not use land title deed to money from financial institutions.
