URGED: Lenku urged plot owners to desist from disposing of them now that they are more marketable, and instead use them to empower themselves

Residents of Mosiro, a remotes part of Kajiado county can now seek loans using land documents as collateral in commercial banks.

Some 1,000 land allotment letters were issued to plot owners and public institutions at Oldorko town in Mosiro ward on Tuesday evening.

While launching the issuance exercise governor Joseph Lenku said those residents issued with the allotment letters can now develop their plots.

Public institutions such as primary and secondary schools, dispensaries, churches were also issued with the documents to guard them against land grabbing.

Lenku said the plots were secured, surveyed and allotted in a process that was started by the county land registry in a bid to cut down on fraudsters two years ago.

“This exercise has marked a new beginning in securing land rights of the marginalised communities in rural areas that had lacked the means to utilise prime land in their towns for economic empowerment,” said Lenku.

He went on: “Most of these prime lands were lying idle as no one could develop them. Now the new owners can venture into commercial activities.”

The governor urged the plot owners to desist from disposing of them now that they are more marketable, and instead use them to empower themselves and their families.

Lenku used the same occasion to urge the Maasai community to talk in one voice in demanding their rights.

“In the future general elections, let us also vote as a block for the desired leaders in this country. We have the numbers, and we can now negotiate with other like-minded leaders for political desired goals,” said Lenku.

Annette Sision, a resident of Mosiro town, said she struggled without success for close to 20 years to acquire an allotment letter for a plot.

“I am so grateful to the county government for making this possible. I can now develop my property without fear of being evicted later in life,” said Sision.

Teresia Tikoishi, the headteacher at Naning’oi girls’ primary school and rescue centre for abused girls in Oldorko thanked the county after she received an allotment letter on behalf of the school.
