For a long time, Kenya has been known as the place of the most powerful and influencial when it comes to acquisition of prime property. The only language understood by the corrupt authorities in the ministry of lands is power and money, without which many powerful individuals and families have lost their lands to those considered rich enough to influence unauthorized changes on the Tittle Deeds.
As a result of the many complains and cry from the less financed, president William Ruto's government is on the verge of revoking irregularly acquired lands in a bid to harmonize the land ownership and slay the dragon of land grabbing.
Speaking during a vetting process by the National Assembly's Appointment Committee, President Ruto's Cabinet Secretary nominee for Lands Zacharia Njeru said that if cleared, his ministry shall move to revoke Tittle Deeds which were aquired irregularly and have the land handed over to the rightful owners.
According to a video footage published by Citizen TV, Mr Njeru said the government through his ministry shall not favour the so called tittled, the powerful and the rich in its bid to reposses illegally acquired portions of land. He added that any fake tittle deed shall be treated as papers.
'If we have individuals who have titles and they never followed proper processes to acquire those pieces of land, then as a CS I will make sure those titles are possessed back. If titles were not acquired procedurally then I will treat them as papers' Zacharia Njeru said during the vetting.
