Environment and Forestry Cabinet Secretary Keriako Tobiko has called on residents of Narok East, West of Nairobi, to protect their land as an inheritance for future generations.
"Guard your titles! protect your land! for that is the inheritance for your children and children's children". CS
Tobiko spoke in Enorbarbali Primary School in Narok East, Narok County, where he issued 2328 titles to residents of Enorbarbali, Lengasamu, and Ololturot adjudication sections.
The CS emphasized that the title deeds should be under lock and key and under the family unit, and consent from family members should be sought before the land is sold as provided for in the law.
CS Tobiko thanked President Uhuru Kenyatta for the titling program that has made it possible for marginalized communities to own land, thereby empowering them economically.
The President launched the National Titling Programme, which will see one million titles issued nationwide.
On areas with objections which include Olosokon and Ntulele, CS Tobiko called on the County Commissioner and the Adjudication team to work on the objection to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
CS Tobiko said he will issue titles in Narok East, West, North and South, Transmara, and Kajiado County.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
