Action Taken Against Land Grabbers in Naivasha

Naivasha land encroachers in trouble

Lake Naivasha

The National Land Commission (NLC) warned investors who have encroached on riparian land around Lake Naivasha.

Speaking in Naivasha, NLC Chairman Mohammed Swazuri stated that they will publish the official map displaying the boundaries of the riparian land.

Swazuri further stated that the Lands Commission would also start kicking out the encroachers.

Initial probes had proven that some flower farmers, hoteliers and individuals had encroached on the land, according to the NLC Chairman.

The NLC Chairman stated: “We have the official 1923 map which indicates the lake’s beacons and we shall release the official map so that those who have encroached on it can move out.”

Swazuri said that the NLC was working with Nakuru county government to ensure the land was given back to the public.

He noted that the access road was crucial to the economy of Naivasha and people who work in the area.

“There was a presidential decree that all landing beaches and riparian land which are public land be gazetted and we are working to achieve this,” Swazuri stated.

NLC was in the process of repossessing a prime government land opposite Naivasha law courts that had been grabbed by an individual.

In 2017, angry residents in Naivasha raised a storm as they attempted to open the blocked road corridor and lashed out at the investor who had blocked it.

They protested and accused the investor of harassing residents and blocking them from accessing the water body.
