USIU protests

The National Land Commission (NLC) has now written to the United States International University (USIU) – Africa demanding ownership documents of the disputed 30-acre parcel of land in up market Muthaiga North estate in Nairobi.

In a letter written by NLC Chief Executive Officer, Tom Chavangi, the Commission has given the University seven days to present the land ownership documents of the multi-million shilling disputed piece of land which has been claimed by US-based Kenyan private developer George Kiongera.

The university officials are currently presenting their petition related to the disputed piece of land to Lands Cabinet Secretary Prof. Jacob Kaimenyi.

This comes just hours after the United States International University (USIU) – Africa’s fraternity Wednesday took to the streets to protest the alleged grabbing of the institution’s land.

Led by USIU Chancellor Manu Chandaria, the protesters staged a demonstration along Thika Super Highway following allegations of attempts by a private developer to grab the institution’s land.

USIU Vice Chancellor Tiyambe Zeleza has insisted that the university is the legitimate owner of the land in dispute.
