LAND Secretary Charity Ngilu has said a fresh audit of land allocation in Chembe-Kibambamche and Jimba settlement schemes in Kilifi is underway.
Ngilu said the audit is meant to reveal illegal land dealings at the two schemes, which have been marred with controversy for a long time.
Speaking after re-opening the Kilifi land registry on Thursday, Ngilu said she is waiting for a report on the schemes in Malindi subcounty.
The registry had been closed for 10 days from August 13 for reorganisation and re-shelving of files.
Some 87,000 files were reorganised.
Ngilu said the registry will soon be automated to avoid cases of missing files.
She said the two settlement schemes have had controversial land allocations and her ministry will solve the problems.
Most of the plots in the scheme were reportedly issued to foreigners.
