Owners of land Jomo exempted from board terms to get titles under Uhuru

What you need to know:

  • Over the years, the land on the outskirts of Nairobi changed hands to hundreds of claimants who have lived in fear of their investments being brought down.
  • A ray of hope shone on them this month.

In 1974, President Jomo Kenyatta exempted the sale of an expansive land from Land Control Board conditions, but the transaction was subsequently stalled by a protracted ownership dispute that has only been settled during his son’s presidency this year.
