Lands CS Farida Karoney has said more land registry offices should be opened in all the sub-counties in the county.
â€śThereâ€™s is an urgent need to decentralize land registry especially in Machakos. We need more offices in sub-counties to help solve many land injustices,â€ť Karoney said. The CS spoke when she met Machakos Deputy Governor Francis Maliti at his office on Monday.
She also intimated that a chaired task force by Machakos county commissioner Esther Maina has been instituted to look into and address historical land issues.
â€śLand ownership and documentation has been over the years a challenge to our people and we are looking forward to solving this mess,â€ť she said
During the meeting, Maliti said the county government has collaborated with the national government and issued thousands of title deeds across the county.
â€śWe are happy so far that at least our people are getting their title deeds and the proper land documentation, thanks to the national government,â€ť Maliti said..
