The County Government of Uasin Gishu has pledged to follow up on the titling of land for locals around Hill School on the outskirts of Eldoret town.
County’s Chief Officer for Lands and Housing Adv. Ruth Chelashaw, on Thursday, May 12, 2022, met residents of Hill School concerning the land tenure and title provision to residents who felt the process had taken a bit longer than anticipated.
They raised concerns after the process failed to be completed yet the county government had submitted all requirements to Nairobi’s Lands offices.
The project was initiated under the Kenya Informal Settlements Improvement Program (KISIP) in 2019.
In a round table discussion with the area Member of County Assembly (MCA) Amos Kiptanui and the residents, they agreed to meet the National Programme Coordinator for KISIP, who would provide clarity on the concerns raised especially on the reasons for the slow progression in the exercise.
“Our Governor, H. E Jackson K Mandago, has personally been keen on ensuring Hills School residents get their titles, and for this reason, he will ensure the process is completed,” Adv. Chelashaw assured the residents.
“All procedures have been followed with survey works completed and documents submitted to Nairobi Lands Registrar as required, the process is close to its completion and we are making this a priority,” she added.
