BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,30TH JULY 2018-The grabbers of kibarani land in Mombasa are in trouble after President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered the National Land Commission (NLC) to revoke the allocation of a dumpsite land in Mombasa to a private developer.
The statement sent from the State House Press Office on Monday, President Kenyatta said the approximately 80-acre Kibarani dumpsite which is under reclamation will be decommissioned for recreational facilities in a bid to support the regeneration of Mombasa city and boost tourism.
The National Assembly Committee on Environment and Natural Resources led by Maara lawmaker Kareke Mbiuki had a few days ago ordered the immediate suspension of the reclamation of the riparian land over corruption allegations.
Mombasa County had announced plans to temporarily move the city’s dumpsite to Mwakirunge after it emerged the location of the dumpsite in Kibarani was threatening aquatic life with solid waste finding its way to the ocean.
