NLC Revokes Titles of Irregularly Acquired Public Plots in Syokimau
Syokimau Residents Association (SRA) has been engaging with the National Land Commission to reclaim illegally acquired public lands in Syokimau. The journey has been long and tedious but recently the NLC revoked title deeds for all public plots that the Association had identified as having been irregularly acquired. The parcels of land include those meant for a nursery School along Kiungani Road, a primary School situated on Kiungani Road, a secondary school on Community Road, a community borehole near Quarry Road, Silanga Dam along parliament road, a community borehole on Beijing Road, a community borehole and voting centre on Katani Road and the plot on Mwananchi Road that currently houses the police post, health centre and chief camp.
The commission also revoked all the titles within the 32-acre commercial plot that touches both Katani and Community Roads. After requesting SRA to identify the needs of the residents, NLC proceeded to replan and provide for the following facilities in the newly drawn map of the 32-acre plot: a police station, central government administration offices to cater for the Deputy County Commissioner, Assistant CountyCommissioner, Chief, county administration offices, and a level three hospital
