Odinga warns Kwale residents against land grabbing Jubilee

05 September 2016, 23:43

Nairobi - Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga recently told Kwale people that Kenyatta administration cannot be trusted in solving land question since they are part of the problem.

During his visit in the region perceived as opposition zone, Raila said the main intention of Jubilee is to grab land in the region and not giving solution.

Kinango MP Gonzi Rai kicked off the storm at Kikoneni primary school and said locals in the area refused to vote for Jubilee in 2013 for fear of their land being taken away.

“People were made to believe that if jubilee took over power their land would be taken. How many locals whose land has been taken by president Uhuru and his deputy William Ruto? Instead they are issuing title deeds to your land, “posed Rai who said the region is now supporting government.

Deputy President William Ruto took on Raila saying he deceive coast people by saying Jubilee cannot offer land solution even though they are issuing title deeds already across the country.

“Two weeks ago I was in Kwale alongside Raila and he continued to lie to residents that solution to land is not giving them title deeds. Our friends have land questions but Jubilee has the answer,” he addressed.

Ruto said that they will ensure coast region people and country at large have title deeds to their land for citizens to feel as Kenyans.

Kilifi North MP Gideon Mung’aro criticized Odinga for failing to initiate substantial roads, health, roads and water projects despite having the powers during coalition government.

“Raila and his team was in government with all powers in land, roads, water and health but they did nothing for coast people. Uhuru and his team is constructing roads in Tana River, Kilifi and Kwale and initiated water projects. They are also giving title deeds,” said Mung’aro.

Others present included Kilifi South MP Mustafa Iddi,Zainab Chizuga, ambassador Chirau Mwakwere, CS water Eugen Wamalwa, CS land Jacob Kaimenyi, MP Khatib Mwashetani, deputy governor Fatuma Achani.
