Issuance of land title deeds in Kitui County has gone a notch higher following the completion of land adjudication in Kavyuaa area of Mutomo.
Consequently, adjudication register is now open for inspection at the local Assistant Chief’s office.
The Mutomo Lands Adjudication Officer Linus Mworia in a public notice is calling on residents to visit the administrator’s office from 8.00 to 5.00 pm from Monday to Thursday to inspect the register and verify whether the details therein are correct.
“Any person named or affected by the adjudication register, and who considers it incorrect or incomplete in any aspect may within sixty days submit their objection to my office,” said the notice.
Mworia further said that any objection must be in writing and must state the reasons for the objection.
“Every objection will attract a fee of Sh. 500,” the notice stated.
The government plans to issue 4.2 million title deeds to Kenyans without the vital land document by the end of this year.
Lands Cabinet Secretary Prof. Jacob Kaimenyi late last year said the government was keen on delivering on its election pledge to ensure that Kenyans were issued with the land documents as a catalyst to accelerating development.
The government had by May last year issued at least 200,000 title deeds to land owners in Ukambani region.
During the end of that month, Machakos County had 86,200, Kitui County had 65,000 while Makueni County had at least 50,000 titles issued.
