The comment from the ODM official adds came a few says after Ruto told BBC that he had innocently bought the land and only learnt about its illegal acquisition when the National Land Commission investigated the matter.

In fact, for the record, the National Land Commission has made a finding that Weston was an innocent purchaser for value from somebody who got it illegally, and preparations have been made constitutionally to restore that land to Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) by demanding that those who sold the land to us must pay,” the DP stated.

Media reports indicated that KCAA was not happy with the decision by the NLC tribunal and intended to appeal it so that it can get back the land instead of getting compensation form the alleged grabbers.
