Government Must Stop Inhumane Acts,Governor Kivutha Raises Critical Questions After Evictions

Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana has warned the government to stop inhumane evictions that have seen several Kenyans losing homes.

The Governor who recently raised critical questions concerning BBI and later declaring support for the document has now raised questions going by evictions in different parts of the country such as Embu,Nairobi,Maasai and Tana River counties.

In his statement,Kibwana said statutory bodies such as TARDA,ADC, public universities got the land they claim as theirs in the first place.And which elite has benefitted from such land. 

"Clearly , land reform will be critical. Art. 60(1)(a) guarantees equitable access to land for all.

Public land should be recovered. Ownership of land must be within the law. Past land grabs must be revoked. We can regularize land ownership in the so-called "slums/informal settlements''. Indefinite postponement of title issuance in settlement schemes deprives people of rights,"reads Kivutha's statement

This comes hours after residents of Makima,Embu County on Saturday morning were evicted by police over a disputed piece of land.
