Securing land tenure for the people of Tingwa and Silboi has been long coming and a solution to the problem that has lasted over 30 years has seen light as the County Government leadership provides an amicable solution to the conflicts that caused a delay in getting land titles for the two farms.
In pursuit of the same, the Department of Lands and Housing tasked to ensure the improvement of livelihoods of the people through secure land tenure has undertaken the task to do the status report for the farm to determine the current status of the land vs the provided records of the shareholders.
Chief officer for Lands and Housing Adv Ruth Chelashaw while addressing the members drawn from both farms said that it was time the people of Tingwa and Silboi agreed to solve the issue amicably.
The County Government is willing to help you get documentation for this farms but it’s only after you are in agreement to allow us pursue the right channel. To start with we would like to first undertake an understanding of the ground through a thorough ground status report that aims at determining who and what is on the parcels as at now. We want to also know where the parcels allocated for public utilities are, ” said Adv. Chelashaw
In a voting majority accepting the process of Ground Status Report, members drawn from both farms agreed to have the county bring forth the survey team as soon as possible.
Silboi landowners agreed that their records were in order but they had outstanding balances that hadn’t be paid and would resolve the way forward to clear the debt.
Also present were Director Physical Planning Planner Daniel Koech, Ward Administrator, Office of the Governor’s representative Ms Sylvia Chesang and area Chief.
