Ruto orders eviction of Kiambu tycoons from government land

President Ruto orders an immediate eviction of land grabbers from government land in Kiambu County.

Speaking during a working tour in Gatundu North Constituency, Ruto expressed regret that the occupation was impeding the development of affordable housing.

He charged the Central Regional Commissioner with seeing that the order was carried out.

Ruto revealed that he will return to the county in December to launch the construction of 10,000 houses after the land grabbers are forced out.

“They (land grabbers) have made fake titles and they are planning on taking the land. I want to tell the Regional Commissioner here that all those who have grabbed government land to be removed,” Ruto ordered.

“We want to build houses so that Kenyans can live with dignity. All those sitting on government land must be moved immediately.”

Ruto made the comments after Kimani Wamatangi, the area governor, claimed that business tycoons had taken multiple pieces of land intended for government projects.

Wamatangi claims that some former politicians are also involved in the land grabbing.

However, he did not reveal the names of the former politicians and tycoons responsible for the grabbing.

The Governor added that he was pleased with Ruto’s directive noting it will allow the Affordable Housing agenda to go on without any challenges.

“The biggest problem that I have been having in this county is with these land grabbers. In Kiambu, we went to an Affordable Housing site and half of 4 acres had been taken by a tycoon,” he affirmed.

Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wah also cautioned land grabbers against using court cases to scuttle the government’s development agenda.

The National Assembly Majority Leader advised the Governor to forward a list mentioning all the land grabbers and forward it to the Head of State to allow him to take action.

“Give the President the list so that he can deal with them. He has already said that they only have three options,” the MP stated.
