Westlands Member of Parliament Tim Wanyonyi has put land grabbers on notice and warned of dire consequences against security agents protecting them.
Unscrupulous people with insatiable appetite for public lands will have no space to touch any property in Westlands Constituency, he has warned.
Mr Wanyonyi has threatened to take stern action against any person or entity eyeing public property, especially school land, in the city constituency.
In a stern warning on Friday, October 28, the MP also put on notice public officials, more so those from provincial administration, to desist from working with fraudsters to steal public land.
He was speaking at Bohra Primary School when he officially unveiled a new administration block.
The block is meant to ease the working conditions of teachers at the school and as well offer a conducive working environment.
“There are some people salivating at this school’s land and make it their private property. But we will say no,” he said.
He said public property should always remain in the hands of the public and no one should dare imagine of stealing it for private use.
As area MP, he said he will not allow unscrupulous people to unleash untold suffering on residents especially schools by conniving with corrupt government officers to grab land.
“I am sending a warning that we have a new government and if you continue like that, I will report to the president himself. And I will tell him there are conmen and it is your security people protecting them,” he warned.
He threatened to involve the president directly in addressing the issue should the land cartels continue with their evil deeds.
He also warned to report to the president officers from the provincial administration who are working with cartels in stealing public property.
He challenged those claiming ownership of public land to publicly declare their interest and table ownership documents instead of using archaic means in claiming such properties.
“Why don’t they come openly, display documents and tell us to move. Why are they using the backdoor?” he wondered.
At the same time, he promised to petition parliament so that footbridges are erected on the busy Waiyaki way especially where schools are situated so that learners can be safe when crossing the roads.
The legislator said the lives of the learners were so important and cannot be left at the mercy of motorists, some who are careless on the roads.
On the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC), the MP assured parents and learners that it will not be scrapped out but bolstered to make it more beneficial to all.
“We are not just going to focus on examination achievement, we are focusing on all round achievement of children, we are focusing in creativity, on children who will develop wholesomely not just drilling them to pass exams,” he assured.
