A piece of land in Ruiru linked to the Kenyatta family, which is intended for the Northlands City project, has been invaded by unknown individuals. The incident, which occurred on Monday morning, involved the invaders cutting down trees and clearing the land. Additionally, they were seen carting away sheep from the farm. The motives behind this invasion remain unclear.
Northlands City is a real estate project spearheaded by the Kenyatta family’s company, Brookside Holdings Ltd. It is a KES 500 billion project that aims to accommodate a population of over 250,000 people once completed. The project’s master plan outlines that 3,750 acres will be dedicated to housing, 695 acres for an industrial park, 390 acres for a business district, and 1,697 acres for open recreational space. The remaining 5,156 acres are designated for wildlife conservation and agricultural purposes.
The invasion of this parcel of land is a worrying development for the Northlands City project, as it is an essential component of the ambitious undertaking. It is unclear whether the Kenyatta family will take legal action against the invaders, and if so, what the outcome of such action would be.
