LAND IN­JUS­TICES HURT JP VOTE HUNT

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Rift Valley -

Yet-to-be-re­solved his­tor­i­cal in­jus­tices are frus­trat­ing Ju­bilee’s ef­forts to win over vot­ers. Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta and Deputy Pres­i­dent Wil­liam Ruto have com­mis­sioned projects and won over some Cord loy­al­ists, but land still re­mains a thorn in the flesh. Pun­dits say huge swathes of grabbed land are still in the hands of state of­fi­cials and un­til they are re­claimed, the duo will not at­tract enough sup­port. Ju­bilee is bank­ing on in­fra­struc­ture projects, paras­tatal ap­point­ments and is­suance of ti­tle deeds to woo vot­ers.
