“The chief officer declined to reveal the identities of the persons although he alleged that one of the encroachers was the slain businessman Jacob Juma. He also failed to provide the original title deed of the park and the survey report of the exact size of the land,” the report further says.

The committee recommended that City Hall rein in on private developers who have grabbed or have been irregularly allocated county properties.

DEMOLISHED

The report also revealed that High Ridge Health Centre had been demolished and the parcel of land allocated to private developers.

It further noted that a private bus company had converted part of the land into a garage and parking lot.

The report showed that 8.5 acres of the 20.5 acres land currently occupied by Highways Stores had been allocated to unknown private developers.

The committee called on the county to survey, demarcate and process proper ownership documents for the part of the land LR No 209/2531 it still owns.

INVESTIGATIONS

It called for the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) and National Land Commission (NLC) to institute investigations on all transactions on the land, especially the transfer to private entities. This is to determine whether the transfers were irregular with those found culpable to be prosecuted and the transfers revoked.

“Lands executive and the chief officer should engage the NLC with a view to revoking fraudulent titles that the private developer may have acquired and ensure that within three months, (they) survey, demarcate and fence the property and put it to the original intended use,” recommended the committee

NO LEASE DOCUMENTS
