The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Central -

Ki­ambu county will safe­guard agri­cul­ture amidst the growth in real es­tate devel­op­ment, which has re­duced farm­land, Gov­er­nor Wil­liam Kabogo has said. He said his govern­ment is aware of the grow­ing num­ber of pri­vate real es­tate de­vel­op­ers in Ki­ambu. “There are ef­forts, through the Lands depart­ment, to de­velop poli­cies that will guide land use,” Kabogo said. He said the Ki­ambu ad­min­is­tra­tion has called for the adop­tion of new farm­ing meth­ods suit­able for ur­ban and peri-ur­ban ar­eas.
