The Star (Kenya) - - Counties | Nairobi -

Gov­er­nor Evans Kidero has threat­ened to put a land buy­ing com­pany in Em­bakasi un­der statu­tory man­age­ment over re­luc­tance to co­op­er­ate with the county.

On Satur­day, he said the di­rec­tors of Njiru Githun­guri Com­pany have re­fused to hon­our meet­ing re­quests to re­solve land dis­putes in Utawala and other parts of East­lands. Kidero spoke at Utawala SDA Church.

“The di­rec­tors have been un­co­op­er­a­tive be­cause they want to stick to the land so that ev­ery time there is a change of share cer­tifi­cate, they make money,” he said.

Kidero said the com­pany has not fol­lowed pro­ce­dures when al­lo­cat­ing land, lead­ing to grab­bing of pub­lic spa­ces and per­sonal prop­erty. The ir­reg­u­lar al­lo­ca­tions have caused dis­putes and deaths in Em­bakasi.
