We want ti­tles for our farms, come to our res­cue, Mt El­gon res­i­dents urge Uhuru

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Western -

Mt El­gon lead­ers have urged Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta to re­solve the land prob­lem dur­ing his tour of Bun­goma county. Busi­ness­man Peter Si­rai yes­ter­day said Uhuru should ex­tend his visit to the sub­county. The Pres­i­dent will visit the county on Fri­day. Si­rai said Uhuru has avoided Mt El­gon dur­ing his pre­vi­ous vis­its. “We have so many is­sues we want ad­dressed, in­clud­ing the is­suance of ti­tle deeds to Chep­yuk squat­ters,” he said. Uhuru will at­tend the first grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony at Kibabii Univer­sity. He awarded it a char­ter in Novem­ber last year. He will also re­open the We­buye Pan-Paper Mills. Speak­ing to the star on the phone, Si­rai, who is a Mt El­gon MP as­pi­rant, said the prob­lem has dragged for a long time and the squat­ters are frus­trated. “We want the is­sue solved so farm­ers can ac­cess credit fa­cil­i­ties,” he said.
