BRING BACK OUR LAND, JUA KALI ARTISANS DEMAND



Kiambu Jua Kali Association chairman, Karanja Kamau now wants the Gatuanyaga and Gatundu jua kali lands that were grabbed reverted to the public.
Kamau claimed that there were powerful individuals who had grabbed a section of the two lands thereby disrupting operations of the artisans.
“Jua kali lands in Gatuanyaga and Gatundu Town have been grabbed by individuals who intend to develop them,” said Kamau.
Speaking to jua kali artisans in Thika Town, Kamau said the association will seek to reclaim all the grabbed land back.
“We will not watch as the businesses of Kiambu youths collapse because of these powerful individuals,” said the chairman.
He stated that the association will use all means possible to get back the grabbed lands.
“We will use all means to ensure no land is grabbed and that which has been grabbed reverted to the public,” said Kamau.
He called on the county government of Kiambu to revoke the title deeds of the concerned plots as they have been acquired illegally.
He also urged the county government to be tough on land grabbing saying any development on public land should be for the benefit residents.
“Most of the youth who don’t proceed with formal education venture into the jua kali sector. Those who grab such plots deny them their right to acquire skills that will help them in future,” he said.
Kamau further urged youth to enroll in jua kali Sector to acquire skills that will help them improve their lives.
