Colonial squatters get tittle deeds after 53 years

23 February 2016, 15:59 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - More than 360 residents of colonial villages in Nyeri County have been issued with title deeds after waiting for 53 years.

Cabinet Secretary in charge of lands, Jacob Kaimenyi issued the ownership documents at Ruring’u Stadium while accompanied by National Land Commission officials and area MP, Esther Murugi.

The beneficiaries were drawn from Ithenguri, Gatitu, Kihatha, Kihuyo and Riamukurwe villages with Kaimenyi saying they intend to cover 200 villages within the County by end of March.

“The Ministry intends to issue titles to plot owners in 200 villages in Nyeri. By end of March, we will have issued 2 850 titles and the President will also grace the event,” said Kamenyi.

He however warned the beneficiaries against selling the land.

“I urge those who have received the titles to utilize them carefully to benefit themselves and their children. Development was retarded in those villages because of lack of ownership documents,” he noted.

He added that plans are underway to resettle squatters as government is planning to buy more land at Solio Ranch where other squatters were resettled.

The first beneficiaries, Kaimenyi said, will be audited following claims that undeserving persons benefited from the programme.

Kaimenyi added that the Ministry has so far issued 2.3 million title deeds countrywide and intends to issue three million by next year.
