A section of Karachuonyo constituency residents have threatened to stop Homa Bay's Sh560 billion Agri- City project. The members of the Kakdhimu clan said the project, in which about 1,000 acres of land were given to the county government, did not follow the right procedure.
The land is at the centre of a tussle between Kauma and Kakdhimu clans for 40 years. Speaking on Saturday, Kakdhimu chair David Ajwang said their Kauma counterparts did not consult them when they gave the land to the county government. "We had won a court case as the rightful owners of the land.
They then appealed at High Court in Kisii. After withdrawing their case from the court, they gave out the land without our consent." Ajwang said the county government has acquired 600 acres and another 400.
