  • This comes after Isiolo County leaders, led by area governor, Mohammed Kuti, raised concerns about the implications of the Gazette Notice, arguing that it will open room for irregular allocation of land to unscrupulous individuals.

The Ministry of Lands has agreed to amend the Gazette Notice that declared Isiolo County as an adjudication area.

According to Lands CS Farida Karoney, the Ministry will revise the Gazette Notice to specify the settlement areas where the legal notice will apply.

“The schedule of the settlement areas will be compiled by the County Government and formally submitted to the Cabinet Secretary by Friday, November 15, 2019,” said CS Karoney in a press statement.

This comes after Isiolo County leaders, led by area governor, Mohammed Kuti, raised concerns about the implications of the Gazette Notice, arguing that it will open room for irregular allocation of land to unscrupulous individuals.

The local leaders further pointed out that the notice would deprive communities living in Isiolo of their land, and that the land in the county will be allocated to individuals.

The Lands CS, however, assured that the ongoing survey and demarcation of Isiolo will not be interrupted.

The land adjudication process involves determining and recording of rights and interests of individuals residing on registered Community Land for the purpose of facilitating the registration of titles.

The Land Adjudication Act dictates that the State works together with the communities in the land adjudication process.
