Tension is high between Purko and Matapato section over a 6.3km stretch of land in Enkaroni with Maika family claiming ownership.

Addressing the concerned parties, the Governor Dr. David Nkedianye accompanied by MCAs, deputy county commissioner and other county officials toured the area and walked along the disputed area with the surveyors taking points and marking all the bicons along the way.
Dr. Nkedianye argued the residents to maintain peace.
“Let’s live together in harmony as we work hard to find a lasting solution. The surveyors will examine the findings in their report and on Tuesdays next week they will examine the findings and on Tuesday next week they will draw the correct map of the area.” Said the governor
He added that both sides will be represented and a date will be set to solve the matter. boundary disputes in Kajiado County are high but the county government has promise to solve the issues.
