LANDS C.S MEETS LAMU COUNTY POLITICAL LEADERS LED BY GOVERNOR TIMAMY TO ADRESS LAND ISSUES IN LAMU
Lamu Governor H.E Issa Timamy E.G.H, O.G.W has attended a consultative meeting of Lamu County elected leaders to address land issues in Lamu.
The meeting that was chaired by the Cabinet Secretary from the Ministry of Lands, Public Works, Housing and Urban Development Hon. Zacharia Mwangi Njeru gave an opportunity to all elected leaders to address the issues of squatters and injustices in land distribution that has affected Lamu County for decades.
The C.S assured leaders and the residents of Lamu that his Ministry was committed to getting to the root cause of the longstanding land issues and offering amicable solutions.
Lamu Governor thanked leaders for attending the meeting noting that it was a good head start towards solving land issues in Lamu. He further noted that among key challenges that affect the Lamu people are inequalities in land distribution and further urged the C.S to deter the issuance of title deeds to cartels who acquire title deeds from Nairobi without the knowledge of the County Government yet land is a devolved function.
The governor further urged political leaders not to publicize the emotive land adding that it’s a sensitive matter that requires a concerted effort of all stakeholders to find a solution.
The meeting comes as a follow-up to President William Ruto’s tour of the County last weekend where he committed to address the arising land issues in the area.
In attendance was Lamu Deputy Governor H.E. Raphael Munyua, County Women Representative Hon. Monica Marubu, Lamu West M.P Hon. Stanley Muthama, Lamu East M.P Captain Ruweida, Nominated Senator Hon. Shakila Abdalla, County Lands CECM Hon. Tashrifa Mohamed, Lamu County Member’s of Assembly led by their Speaker Hon. Azhar Ali among others.
