Governor Joseph Ole Lenku and State House Comptroller Katoo Ole Metito are embroiled in a high octane battle over the fate of a prime land worth a whopping Sh 70 Billion near Ngong Town
Daggers are drawn between allies of both leaders over the subdivision of LR Number 12418 which measures approximately 2,700 acres.
An acre of land their costs between Sh 25 Million and Sh 30 Million depending on location.
Two groups of officials, one led by Moses Parantai and another by Moses Ole Monik have come out to battle for legitimacy as the bonafide officials with each claiming to have the genuine documents.
Mr Metito’s group is led by Moses Ole Monik and is being backed by Kajiado Speaker Justus Ngussur and Kajiado West MP George Sunkuyia.
Both Mr Ngussur and Mr Sunkuyia are bidding for Mr Metito.
They are close political allies.
The pro – Lenku camp is led by Moses Parantai and is supported by key political figures in Kajiado West including area MCAs.
Early this month, the Governor hosted the two warring camps after it emerged that each were claiming trusteeship, but the Parantai group had the advantage of possessing the land’s Title Deed.
The two groups seemed to agree on the Sub division of the land but strongly disagreed on the stake for their respective members.
In a new twist and a show of might by the Parantai group, the faction held a well-attended meeting on the disputed land and asserted its ownership by declaring that they would not allow fraudsters to infiltrate on the Sub division.
They declared a list submitted by the Monik Group as “fake and full of proxies of political brokers”.
And in a demonstration that the Parantai Group has the backing of the County Government, Kajiado Land CEC Member Hamilton Parseina threw a spanner in the works and published a caveat emptor in the mainstream media and cautioned members of the public against paying any money to anyone as the Sub division had not been approved.
“There are various individuals and entities purporting to be members of Keekonyokie Community Trust who are fraudulently asserting ownership and are attempting to unlawfully claim the said land from the County Government of Kajiado” the notice by Parseina said.
It adds, ” The County Government advises members of the Public not to make any payments or to engage with any such entities or their agents or proxies.”
