Kenya: Kanu Sends Officer to Take Stock of Laikipia Assets

KANU party has sent an Executive officer to Laikipia county to take stock of its assets. Party Secretary General Nick Salat has appointed John Koskei to compile a report on its assets and liabilities.

Speaking to the press in Nanyuki town yesterday, Koskei said the party is taking stock of its assets to protect them from grabbers. "Kanu has property worth more than Sh30 million in the larger Laikipia county and we now want to put our house in order," he said.

The party's property include a rental house in Nanyuki town which houses several business premises and another one in Nyahururu town. Others are undeveloped plots in Doldol, Rumuruti, Kinamba and Lamuria townships. He claimed that rent collected from the business premises has been going to pockets of some individuals, who collude with some officials in the national office.

Koskei said the party is ready to clear Sh4 million it owes various government institutions and other debtors. He warned individuals targeting to grab the party's assets that they risk being taken to court, adding that some party officials have hidden some documents like title deeds. which he said they must produce. "We do not want to name them at the moment but they know themselves. They should surrender them to the party since its constitution is very clear" warned Koskei. He added that he has been tasked to conduct a search at the lands registry offices to establish whether the title deeds have changed ownership.
