Kandara residents want CS Karoney sacked for denying them rights to own Del Monte land

Kandara Residents Association has called for the sacking of Lands CS Faridah Karoney, her PS Nicholas Muraguri, the National Land Commission Chairman Gershom Otachi and the entire NLC board for denying them their right to own part of the disputed land currently held by Del Monte Limited.

Association chairman Philip Kamau accused the officials of disregarding President Uhuru Kenyatta’s directive to involve them while renewing the company's lease.

Kamau further claims the commission has through deliberate omissions, refused to implement the law as stipulated in the Constitution by allowing the ministry to resurvey land held by the Del Monte Limited. It has also been claimed that the ministry and NLC have continued to hold conversations with Del Monte and Kiambu and Murang’a county governments over the lease but denied the lobby the right.

“Renewal of the lease without the participation of the residents as directed by the President and the Lands Committee of the National Assembly is a violation of the law,” argued Kamau.
