He will address the issue of rampant corruption cases, double titling, faulty or even fake title deeds, unscrupulous land buying companies and malpractices in land control boards.
Also to feature in Kaimenyi’s address, will be his move to disband the boards and streamline their operations, the reports of disappearance of Green cards and land documents and what safeguards have been put in place to stop the vice.
The grabbing of school playing grounds and status of the issuing of title deeds to schools, will also be discussed. The summit will also focus on state of Land Tenure and Renewal of leases for foreigners.
