Title deeds for over 500,000 acres in Lamu to be revoked

President Uhuru Kenyatta has ordered the revocation of titles deeds to nearly 500,000 acres of land in Lamu County, which he said was acquired fraudulently.
He has directed Lands Cabinet Secretary Charity Ngilu and the National Lands Commission to repossess land parcels allocated to 22 private entities.
In a televised statement to the Nation, President Kenyatta also instructed the Inspector General of Police, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission and the CID to immediately start investigations with a view to bringing to account all persons involved in dubious land allocation in Lamu County.
