It has now emerged that some officers in the lands ministry, Nairobi City County Government and National government misled the president to issue fake title deeds in Eastlands an event that was even televised live country wide.
Appearing before planning committee Lands minister Nairobi City county Charles Kerich could not explain why up to 98% of the residents who were told by president Kenyatta that the titles are ready and free have not received the title deeds as announced and directed.
The committee chairman Antony Kiragu when questioning City Hall Land director madam Cecilia found that the few titles produced at Jacaranda grounds and given out by the president were prepared in advance and some were indeed fake.
‘‘Madam Cecilia can we confirm that someone somewhere went ahead and produced titles without following due process and that what was issued were fake?’’ Kiragu asked .
‘‘Yes Chairman.’’ She answered.
After the Jacaranda event City hall went on and contracted lawyers to help them do the title deeds at a cost not exceeding ksh 30,000.
Several lawyers including Donald Kipkorir have been questioned by the planning committee on why they have not delivered to the expectations of the residents despite receiving the amount.
‘‘Our goal now is to ensure Nairobians get their titles within the shortest possible time and we are going to do a report to ensure that its done,I mean this unfair to the people of Embakasi.’’ Kiragu said.
At Jacaranda president Uhuru Kenyatta and Governor Mike Sonko made it clear that the 50 000 titles were ready and they were to pick them immediately.
