The Committee on Lands, Physical Planning and Urban Development has today met and engaged various stakeholders over longstanding boundary dispute between the Oloirien and Mikululo Communities, Kajiado East sub county.
The committee, chaired by Mosiro MCA Hon. Jonathan Koroine, gathered information from Kaputei Elders, Lands Sub Committee (Council of Elders), Kaputei Professionals, National Land Commission officials and the County Lands & Physical Planning department.
This follows a motion earlier moved by Hon. Bernard Muloma over the matter.
Mr. Daniel Osoi termed the long standing dispute as a Historical Injustice that has posed challenges as the area had been demarcated as a sanctuary for pasture and water for livestock during drought season. He wondered why members of Mikululo Ranging Company occupied the land.
Mr. Julius Ntayia appealed to the County Assembly of Kajiado to step in and find a lasting solution.
Representing Kaputei Professionals, Dr. Kennedy Kerei said that the long standing feud is a tool that has led to economic, environmental and society cultural deprivation. Adding that the area is a habitat for the wildlife and suitable economic hub for the locals.
Further, the Committee has granted one week to the Kajiado County National Land Commission Saida Hamida to table a report on the status of the boundary dispute.
