Raila: Uhuru gave illegal title deeds to Coast residents

25 November 2013, 09:12

Shimoni - Former Prime Minister says the title deeds issued to Coast residents by President Uhuru Kenyatta are illegal.

According to the former PM, President Kenyatta issued the deeds to woo voters in the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (Cord) turf in the March 4 polls, The Standard reports.

Raila who was leading the Cord team to campaign for their candidate in the Lunga Lunga parliamentary seat said the issuance of the deeds was a form of propaganda used by the Jubilee government.

President Kenyatta had earlier on told Raila to join him in solving the land problem in the country or shut up.

The President said if issuing title deeds and resolving the age-old land problem in the country was tantamount to doing a clerical job, he was ready to continue doing it until the problem is solved permanently.

On his part, Deputy President William Ruto asked the former PM to stop politicizing the land issue and instead support the Government in the noble initiative of issuing title deeds.

Ruto said issuing title deeds to enable Kenyans benefit from their land is part of the Jubilee Manifesto and the Government will continue with the exercise until it achieves its target of issuing three million title deeds.
