Tuesday November 20, 2018 – President Uhuru Kenyatta warned that the Government will repossess all grabbed land across the country.
Speaking while launching the Kenya Coast Guard Service in Mombasa on Monday, Uhuru, who was accompanied by his deputy, William Ruto, told land grabbers to return the parcels of land before they are evicted.
Uhuru said private developers have grabbed public land and fish landing sites at the Coast and around Lake Victoria.
“We shall not plead with land grabbers to return public land. They must do so immediately before we embark on an exercise to reclaim them forcefully,” Uhuru said.
The father of the nation also directed the National Land Commission and the Fisheries Department to recover the plots before March next year.
Ruto and other Government operatives are among people who are alleged to have grabbed land and fish landing sites in Mombasa.
Ruto owns Dolphin Hotel that has grabbed a public beach in Mombasa.
