Withdraw Mwea land case, Wambora to elders
Embu Governor Martin Wambora

Embu Governor Martin Wambora has called on Kamba, Mbeere, Embu and Kikuyu elders to withdraw the court cases they have filed in court, over the disputed 45,000 acre Mwea Trust Land.

Speaking to the press, Governor Wambora said a time has come for the Land dispute to be resolved to pave way for sub-division of the land.

Embu will finance the adjudication of the 45,000-acre Mwea Trust Land and end a rift between various groups eyeing the prime property in Mbeere South sub-county.

Wambora further said he is keen to see the tussle over and establish who the true owner is.

This is the first time that Mr. Wambora has publicly declared his stand over the land dispute which has pitted the Nyaangi Ndiiriri and Ngome Council of Elders against the Mwea Council of Elders on how to undertake the adjudication process.

Mr. Wambora urged all parties to agree on the sharing of the land and to leave a portion for investors to set up industries that would create jobs.

Elders from Mbeere, Embu, Kikuyu and Kamba communities had all moved to court staking claim to the land, but Wambora has called on them to agree among themselves on the sharing and also promised to provide government surveyors to carry out the process.

Mr. Wambora has also suggested that each member from the three groups to get five acres each.

Wambora has further said his officers had been provided with a list of the land beneficiaries and the area MCAs has agreed on the process.

The Governor has further suggested that some of our land should be given to investors to set up factories and universities for research work.

He said that Brazilians have expressed interest in beef farming in Embu adding that his government will provide them with land so that they can create employment.
