Machakos Gubernatorial hopeful and CCU party leader Nzioka Waita has promised to bring land reforms and tackle all land issues if elected as the next governor.
Speaking during an annual general meeting of Koma Ranching and Cooperative Society in Matungulu, Waita has pointed out that many residents in Matungulu and Athi River have suffered because of land issues and he will address them once he assumes office.
" I am fully aware of the problems my people are facing especially here in Matungulu, Athi River and I will ensure that we address all land related issues immediately I assume office," said Waita.
Waita revealed that he will work closely with the management of all cooperative societies to ensure that all land owners have title deeds.
"I want everyone to enjoy being a land owner, I will collaborate with the management of all cooperative societies so that each parcel of land the owner is issued with a tittle deed so that they can have security to their lands," added Waita.
Waita futher cautioned politicians against inciting members of societies with the aim of duping them in order to snatch their land.
He added that he will ensure that the case in court between the Koma Ranching and Cooperative Society and the national government for the piece of land in Old KBC station along Kangundo road is settled immediately so that the society can subdivided amongst members.
" I know there are some politicians who are trying to dupe members of societies with court cases with the aim of enticing them to snatch land from them. I understand that there is a case in court between Koma Ranching and Cooperative Society and the national government and I will ensure that the case is settled immediately so that members can subdivide the land," added Waita.
While addressing the members, Benard Maembe who is the Koma Ranching and Cooperative Society chairperson said that the move would ensure that members would be fully owners of the land and cautioned them against selling land at throw away price and pledged to rally behind Waita for the gubernatorial seat.
" This is great move by Waita and I want to promise him that we are behind him and support him fully, I want to send a warning to my members to stop selling their land at throw away prices because there is tomorrow and we are happy because I know at last we will have the land which is rightfully ours," said Maembe.
