Dr. Fred Matiangi, the acting Lands Cabinet Secretary, on Monday said that a lands survey will kick off Wednesday with a view of issuing title deeds to owners of the controversial Kihiu Mwiri land in Muranga County.

Speaking on Monday at Kihiu Mwiri shopping center, Matiangi expressed concern over the increasing death cases over the land conflict that has seen at least ten directors killed under mysterious circumstances.

The CS maintained that the government has moved swiftly to contain Kihiu Mwiri land differences and will ensure that title deeds are issued to the rightful owners so as to avert further conflicts.

He said relevant government agencies have been asked to do everything possible to get to the root cause of the controversy surrounding the troubled land buying company.

Matiangi told land-buying companies to ensure they issued title deeds to avert land conflicts. He further warned the companies against fraudulent issuance of fake title deeds, saying that whoever will be caught giving fake titles will be severely punished according to law.

Muranga deputy governor Gakure Monyo expressed his delight with the steps being taken to curb the land conflicts menace in the county.

Monyo further urged the residents to work together with the surveyors and the government officials who will be carrying out the lands survey.

This is amidst calls by residents for the government to consider only those who have original certificates, issued in 1957, when giving out the title deeds.
