Swazuri resolves 33-year-old land dispute
The National Land Commission has resolved a 33-year-old land row pitting 1,500 members of Ng’enda New Farmers Company Ltd and a businesswoman.
They have been feuding over the ownership of 400 acres in Makuyu, Murang’a county.
The shareholders have persistently fought for justice since Samuel Kibathi, who was the manager of the land, allegedly bought it before he died. His widow Margaret Nyokabi took over after his death.
NLC chairman Muhammad Swazuri on Friday toured the disputed land and met the company’s shareholders and officials. He said the company owns the land, since all ownership documents presented by the officials were legal and indisputable.
Swazuri said his office petitioned Nyokabi to produce documents proving ownership of the land, but she failed to respond.
