The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Coast -

In April, the Na­tional Lands Com­mis­sion cau­tioned Lamu landown­ers against scar­ing away in­vestors. Com­mis­sion chair Muham­mad Swazuri said landown­ers are de­lay­ing the na­tional govern­ment projects by is­su­ing un­re­al­is­tic com­pen­sa­tion de­mands. He spoke in Ba­hari ward, Mpeke­toni, where res­i­dents op­posed a Sh21 bil­lion wind power plant by mak­ing ‘un­re­al­is­tic’ com­pen­sa­tion de­mands of Sh5 mil­lion per acre.
