Big Blow to 800 Squatters As Court Makes a Powerful Ruling

Justice Nelly Matheka of the lands courts has issued an order for the over 800 squatters to vacate Mombasa 100 Acre Land within 180 days but voluntarily. The squatters are supposed to vacate for they have lived in a private land for years without seeking an alternative land to settle on.

Here is a link:

The squatters occupied 100 Acre land against the wish of the owner and are expected to vacate. It's evident that issues a person taking over a private land to settle without his consent is in itself illegal.

The squatters have been seeking compensation from government so that they can get money to buy land without success. Squatters in Mombasa have therefore been urged to vacate a land they occupied since 2007.

The issue of squatters has caused a major challenge in some parts of the country. It's expected that the government of president William Ruto will find a better avenue where squatters can get land and settle for they have suffered a lot.
