Ni kubaya. If you supported mau forest evictions then you should also support ngong road forest evictions.

Quote:
The government is to begin repossessing all land illegally acquired by private developers inside Ngong Road Forest.

Environment CS Keriako Tobiko on Friday said the forest, once reclaimed, will be linked up to the Nairobi National Park.

Tobiko said an underpass will be built to create an expanded dispersal area for wildlife.

More than 800 homes are sitting on the Ngong Road Forest land.

They include Park View, Sunvalley I and Sunvalley II, Kenya Medical Association, Lang'ata View Apartments and St Mary’s Hospital, Forest Edge Maisonettes.

In the illegally hived off area, a 40 by 60 feet plot goes for Sh12 million.

Temporary reprieve...
Judge halts eviction of homeowners in Ngong forest row

Quote:
Mr Kagwanja Thuo, one of the residents, said in court documents that he bought the parcel from Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri in 2006 and has since erected his home.
He said claims by the CS that the titles were illegally obtained are baseless and the court should intervene and stop the fraudulent plans.

Quote:
Another resident under the name of Lang’ata Gardens Ltd, said he has put up a multi-storey building worth Sh240 million in a plot in Lang’ata Phase 3 and it would be illegal to bring it down, yet the title is lawful.
He said he is an innocent purchaser and plans by the CS to bring down the homes amount to impunity.

Quote:
Royal Park, Sunvalley I and II, Lang’ata Gardens, Langa’ta View Gardens, Forest Edge, Kenya Medical Association Estate and St Mary’s Hospital, as well as others in Racecourse where land was annexed for foreign commercial developments are among the targeted properties.

Quote:
The land was gazetted as forest land in 1932, then measuring 7,239 acres. Just after independence in 1964, when the forest was declared a central forest, it had shrunk by nearly half to 3,722.5 acres due to further excisions. By 1978 it had contracted even more to 3,274.57 acres.
Decades later, the forest was hived off again, leaving only 2,443.37 acres in 1996 and 1,330.39 acres in 1999.


From 1932 to 1999 the forest land acreage decreased by 81.6% Sad .

For gazetted forest land to be hived off, parliament must de-gazette the land first.

Past land commissioners have been known to hive off and issue gazetted land illegally to politically connected individuals. The land would be later be sold and re-sold many times over.

Even those in mau forest have title deeds and were also sold forest land by a former mp. Why evict those in mau forest and spare those in ngong forest? Everyone should move out of forests. Period. There is only one law and it should apply to all.

There is lack of political will to address the land grabbing of gazetted forests and water catchment areas once and for all. This will cost us dearly in the near future. If you look at the case below, this was a simple open and shut case and should have lead to a conviction but alas the star witness was bought with a plum job posting.

The KPC Ngong Forest Land Scandal was a scandal that resulted in the suspension in October 2012 of Kenyan Government Minister William Ruto who was charged in court as a result.

Mr Ruto and four other persons faced fraud charges over the alleged sale of a piece of land in Ngong forest to Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) for Sh272 million.


Quote:
In April 2011, Mr. Ruto was acquitted of the Sh43 million land fraud charges for lack of evidence after the prosecution failed to produce in court the then Finance Manager Hellen Njue to give her evidence on how she paid out the money. His co-accused, Mr Joshua Kulei and Mr Sammy Mwaita, were also set free.


Quote:
“The prosecution failed to produce in court the then Finance Manager Hellen Njue to give her evidence on how she paid out the money. It is, therefore, clear that none of the accused ever received any money from KPC. The prosecution has failed to prove its case, thus all the accused persons have no case to answer.”


Quote:
It also emerged that Ruto had in July 2009 appointed Ms Njue, a key witness in the case, to the board of trustees of the Coffee Development Fund.
At the time of the appointment, Ruto was facing a charge of fraudulently receiving money from Njue, acting on behalf of KPC, by pretending he could sell to the corporation 1.75 hectares of land in Ngong Forest. The offence is said to have been committed on September 6, 2001.

You can't vote for the biggest land grabbers in the history of Kenya and expect them to resolve this issue. All of Kenya's presidents thus far have been major land grabbers. You reap what you sow.

It is already costing us. The constant flooding of Nairobi is in part because land that was meant for drainage channels was grabbed and built over. In some cases even riverbeds were built over.

The incessant traffic in Nairobi is in part because land for road reserves were grabbed and built over.

Lack of roads also makes garbage collection impossible.You can't operate large garbage trucks in incessant traffic. Hence sanitation is poor.

The City is poorly planned because all 5 presidents allowed land grabbing to happen with no checks and balances. Now even schools are losing their playing fields to land grabbers.

The City stopped following its master plan as soon as we became independent. No wonder 60% of Nairobians live in slums with no sanitation, reliable water or electricity.

Forest destruction is causing rivers to dry and temperatures are rising.

All because Kenyan leaders have convinced 90% of the population that tribal allegiance is the most important things. So the different tribes insult each other endlessly while the elites grab whatever is available.

Today the families of these elites are fighting over billions of Ksh in wealth.
