NLC gives grabbers 21 days to return all grabbed land in Ngoingwa area.

Thika Township MCA Andrew Ndirangu Kimani.
Residents of Ngoingwa estate in Thika want the governments to intervene and repossess all grabbed public utilities grabbed by former civic leaders.
The residents have petitioned the National Land commission which has given the land grabbers 21 days to surrender those title deeds because they have already been cancelled. 
This, according to area MCA Andrew Ndirangu Kimani, was after the intervention of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto who had visited the area recently.
The MCA said the National Land Commission had summoned those who are sitting on the public land where they have been ordered to surrender the title deeds failure to which buildings will fall at the elapse of the 21 days.
Kimani further divulged that the grabbers had offered to give him 4 plots in a bid to silence him, an offer he declined saying he had to fulfill his pledge to Ngoingwa residents that he would fight corruption and ensure all grabbed public facilities were returned to them.
The MCA accused his predecessors saying they grabbed all public utilities and sold to private developers thus making it hard for the government to initiate any development. He said already money has been set aside for the construction of a police station but the project could not take off since there was no land.
Residents who spoke to the press said among those grabbed plots are children's playing grounds, a market, and other social amenities. 
Among those buildings in the list of being brought down are commercial buildings, churches, schools and residential houses.
Women traders and hawkers in the area want the president to construct a market for them now that the NLC has cancelled all title deeds on grabbed public utilities.
