Kericho and Bomet Counties Score Major Victory as NLC Orders Resurvey of Land Occupied by MNCs
In a major victory for the people of Kericho and Bomet counties, the National Land Commission (NLC) has ordered for land occupied by multinational corporations (MNCs) to be resurveyed and the lease agreements reviewed. Additionally, members of the public will be involved in the process through the Public Participation (P.P) mechanism.
This is a significant development in the ongoing battle against historical land injustices in the region. Dr. Mutai Erick, the Governor of Kericho County, has been at the forefront of this fight, tirelessly advocating for the rights of the people and pushing for action from the government and the NLC.
The issue of land ownership and use has been a contentious one in Kenya for many years. In many cases, large multinational corporations have been accused of using their power and influence to acquire land that rightfully belongs to the people. This has often led to displacement, loss of livelihoods, and other negative consequences for the local communities.
But with the NLC’s recent decision, there is renewed hope that justice will finally be served. By resurveying the land and reviewing the lease agreements, the true owners of the land can be identified and given their rightful due. Additionally, involving members of the public through the P.P mechanism will ensure that the process is transparent and fair, and that the needs and concerns of the local communities are taken into account.
Dr. Mutai Erick’s continued efforts to address land injustices in the region are commendable. His tireless work and dedication to the cause have helped to bring attention to this important issue and ensure that the voices of the people are heard. With the NLC’s recent decision, it is clear that his efforts are paying off and that progress is being made towards a more just and equitable future.
In conclusion, the NLC’s decision to order the resurveying of land occupied by MNCs, the review of lease agreements, and the involvement of the public through the P.P mechanism is a major win for the people of Kericho and Bomet counties. It is a testament to the power of advocacy and the importance of fighting for what is right. With continued efforts from individuals like Dr. Mutai Erick, there is hope that progress will continue to be made towards a more just and equitable future for all.
