THE National Land Commission chairman Mohammed Swazuri said yesterday that land problems at the Coastal region will be solved by June this year. He said the commission has adopted a strategy to end land problems to avoid furthe communial conflicts.
Swazuri said the despute facing 930-acre Waitiki Farm in Likoni and the Vikwatani land will be sorted out. Squatters have settled on the two chunks of land despite their ownership by private individuals.
He said NLC will initiate national wide survey of land, continue to issue title deeds to those eligible and attempt to resolve all pending land disputes. "We must admit that land issues never cease, but we have to come up with strategies that will help solve them smoothly," he said. Swazuri was speaking to the Star in Mombasa yesterday.
This comes up when reports have emerged that some Mombasa squatters have started invading empty land spaces and idle private lands in the region.
Mombasa county commissioner Nelson Marwa had on Jamhuri day warned against the unscrupulous businessmen who sell idle land in Waitiki to unsuspecting residents.
