Uhuru issued irregular title deed in Bomet, NLC says

20 May 2015, 13:59 William Korir

Nairobi - The proposed Bomet University title deed handed over by President Uhuru Kenyatta was illegally allocated, the National Lands Commision NLC has announced.

Chairman Mohammed Swazuri confirmed to News24 Wednesday that there was no process initiated in the allocation of the land.

He also confirmed that the Bomet County Government had written to him to complain about the allocation.

" The NLC was not consulted in allocation of the piece of land allocated to the University," he stated on phone.

" The due process was not followed. The University did not come forward to ask for allocation, we did not communicate with the Bomet County Government".

" There is a survey and allocation team that needs to travel to the site to work on the piece of land. All those did not happen".

" So if there was a title deed handed out, it is illegal," he said.

Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto had stated that the deed, issued two weeks ago during a visit by president Kenyatta and Deputy William Ruto to Bomet for a church fundraiser was fake.

The government though, had stated that the title was not illegal and that the land in question had been initially set aside for the university.

" The land had already been allocated for use by the University. There was nothing illegal, CS Fred Matiang'i stated Tuesday.
