Government sowing seeds of discord over land, says Mudavadi

23 November 2015, 14:47 Dareel Eric

Vihiga - Amani National Congress party leader, Musalia Mudavadi has accused the government of sowing seeds of discord over land.

Mudavadi said that the government is betraying its citizens if it sets citizens against each other over land.

"When government is reluctant to implement devolution in the lands sector, it is telling the people to take the law into their own hands," said Mudavadi.

He noted there was no reason why the National Land Commission (NLC) should not be allowed to operate within the framework provided for it in the constitution.

"It is a government that is afraid of its people that becomes obsessed with control. And therefore the new land law that strips the commission of its constitutional mandate is backward and must be rejected," he said.

Mudavadi spoke when he toured Kajiado County on Sunday.

He said the reluctance to finalise the land policy, altercation between National government and NLC, has spilled over into confusion between National and County over land registration.

He noted the problem in Kajiado, involving land is just the beginning.

"The simmering inter-county disputes in Isiolo/Meru, Vihiga/Kisumu, TaitaTaveta/Makueni, are the warning signs of building conflict," warned the ANC leader.

He said the matter requires the two levels of government to resolve at the summit, noting that delay may spark widespread bloody land conflicts throughout the country.

He said the county values co-existence and integration, values which his party stand for.

The former DP said the skirmishes in Kitegela among traders; and the standoff between the Governor and the Acting CS for Lands Fred Matiang’i, must not be allowed to happen.
