Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho has issued a strict warning of what he expects from land cartels before former Prime Minister Raila Odinga takes power as new details emerge.
Hon Joho has informed that any politician who has grabbed public land should as earlier as now start returning the land to the public strictly warning that in his first 100 days in office should the Azimio win the Presidency, his core role will be to repossess all grabbed land.
"I tell anyone who has grabbed public land to return it before Raila takes power. I will repossess all public land that has been grabbed in the first 100 days in office,” said Joho.
However, despite Joho's remarks, the National Assembly Chair of the Lands Committee Hon Rachael Nyamai has warned of involving politics in land matters saying that it is a sensitive matter that needs to be handled with a lot of care.
“Some of the proposals being peddled around like the one-million-acre scheme and Africanisation policy are just mare fallacies aimed to entice voters,” said Ms. Nyamai who is the Kitui South MP.
