Sakaja Wants NLC Probed Over Nairobi Lands Title Deeds
Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja now wants the National Lands Commission to be probed over the delay of issuance of title deeds of various public lands in Nairobi.
Sakaja says that many Nairobians are living in fear of demolitions and evictions over NLC’s silence over the ownership of the public lands.
Sakaja says that thirsty land grabbers have taken advantage of the lack of title deeds in these places and are illegally pushing residents out of the pieces of land.
“Mr Speaker I have brought issues so many times about Gikomba market Mr. Speaker. Part of the reason why there are fires in Gikomba is because somebody somewhere is holding the titles of the 12 acres of Gikomba market and tries to burn it to push out these people. They must say, they must say in a resolute manner that this land is public land,” said Sakaja.
“Mr Speaker just last week, my people were rendered homeless in Mukuru Kwa Njenga, yes there were feeder roads being done but they went and demolished houses of thousands of innocent people Mr. Speaker,” he said.
According to Sakaja, the lands title deeds issues has become a matter of life and death that should be addressed with the seriousness it deserves.
“Mr Speaker right now thousands of residents of Roysambu in Kamae are fearing to be evicted because the NLC has not pronounced itself on Kamae Mr. Speaker,” said Sakaja.
“Even as the committee of lands looks at this matter, please them summon the NLC. We have issues of life and death, livelihoods of people we represent yet people are getting allowances, salaries, driving big prados in the name of the National Lands Commission,” he said.
