Details have appeared that President Kenyatta may have been hoaxed into presenting dummy title deeds during a ceremony at Jacaranda Grounds, Nairobi in May 2018.
According to Dailly Nation, Nairobi Lands Cabinet Executive Charles Kerich was put to task by Nairobi County Assembly Planning Committee Chairperson Anthony Kiragu on Friday to explain what transpired.
“As a committee, we want to know who lied to the President that 50,000 titles were ready whereas that was not the truth,” enquired Kiragu.
The Lands CEC revealed that the figure was arrived at based on a realistic target they thought could be met. Charles Kerich revealed that 623 title deeds had been issued to Nairobi county residents. He continued that 30,000 of the titles were yet to be issued by the county government while the rest would be handled by the national government.
During the issuing of the title deeds, President Kenyatta had noted that some investors in the city were living in fear because they had put up buildings on parcels of land without title deeds and time had come for them to get their right.
“Those to whom we have issued with titles today will know Nairobi is also theirs,” said Kenyatta.
