Good News To Machakos Squatters After President Ruto Overturns Trade CS Directive

A decision by Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria ordering the removal of squatters from land owned by a private company in Machakos County has been overturned by President William Ruto.

On Wednesday, December 7 during a ceremony to officially break ground on the Mavoko Affordable Housing Project Ruto declared that he had mediated a deal between the company and the locals.

Last week I met with everyone involved and we decided to settle the dispute without going to court so that we could construct more reasonably priced homes in Mavoko.

Ruto stated We have investors here ready to work with us to build 200,000 housing units here.

The president also begged Governor Wavinya Ndeti and other regional leaders not to sabotage the government development initiatives in the area.

We can transform our country by working together and in a targeted manner he said, therefore he wanted to ask everyone to keep their eyes on the greater picture.

To the chagrin of Governor Ndeti one of the decisions made was to transfer 10% of the housing project built apartments to the Machakos county administration.

We need to sell them to the county residents and county government so let attempt to raise that number to 20 or 30 percent she said.
