The national government will soon issue out 50,000 title deeds for Nairobi county, Deputy President William Ruto said has announced.
Speaking in Runda yesterday, Ruto said the titles are ready for issuance.
“President Uhuru Kenyatta and I take the matter of Nairobi very seriously,” Ruto said during a service at PCEA Evergreen Church.
He said the government is committed to resolving all land problems. “We know there are a lot of challenges and we will fix them,” Ruto said.
Speaking at the service, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko said they will protect all public and private property from grabbers.
“I have personally helped to protect many plots belonging to churches from grabbers,” Sonko said.
The governor said he will not sit back and watch as widows, orphans and the less fortunate are thrown out of their property.
Sonko accused political cartels of scheming to scuttle Ruto’s bid for the Presidency in 2022. He said they are firmly behind the DP and asked leaders to focus on development.
“Some cartels want to kill the vision using blackmail,” he said.
Ruto, who presided over a fundraiser for the church, donated Sh3 million and gave out another Sh3 million as a contribution from Uhuru. Sonko contributed Sh1 million.
Governors Joseph ole Lenku (Kajiado), Ferdinand Waititu (Kiambu) and Senators Johnson Sakaja (Nairobi) and Beth Mugo (Nominated) and MPs Kanini Kega (Kieni), Timothy Wanyonyi (Westlands) and Moses Kuria (Gatundu South) attended the service.
