Led by Kisii Municipal Council Audit Committee Chairman Patrick Siro, the leaders questioned how a parcel of land leased to Kenya Farmers Association ( KFA) in the heart of the town changed hands and was now under the ownership of a private developer.
“We are not going to sit back and watch as farmers get defrauded of their prime property through improper means,” Siro told a Press conference in Kisii yesterday.
Siro accused Town Clerk William Chepkwony of authorising sale of the land without the councillors’ consent.
“The clerk is approving documents without the authority of the planning committee. I am challenging the authenticity of minutes cited to issue consent because it shows I was present yet I never attended the meeting,” he said.
But when contacted for response, Chepkwony denied the accusations, saying private investors acquired the property through a public auction.
