Kajiado Governor Dr. David Nkedianye has called on the National Land Commission (NLC) to ensure due process is followed in acquiring lease title in the county.
Speaking during a courtesy call by the CEO of NLC Tom Aziz Chavangii and other lands officials at the county headquarter; Dr. Nkedianye said right procedure should be followed.
“There is a due process that somebody needs to go through but some people just go to Nairobi and they get the lease titles. We are very concern because that is a bad trend and we will not allow that to happen in Kajiado county.” said Nkedianye
He added that the county government wants to increase transparency so that everybody feel the right procedure is being followed.
“We don’t want shortcuts because just that you can influence anyone with money or any other favors to process your title.” Added Nkedianye
On his part Tom Chavangi said the national government will work closely with the county government to improve the trust of the local residents to the county land board.
“We from the nation al government will work closely with the county government to ensure that everybody follow the correct procedure. We want the county land board to build the trust of the residents.” Chavangi said.
Mr. Chavangi asked the county board members to work as a team for the sake of the residents of Kajiado county.
