Nakuru County Government will in 30 days start demarcating its boundary with Narok in a bid to resolve rising cases of land disputes.

In the last couple of years, lives have been lost at Likia and Maella areas due to clashes between different communities. 

The county administration noted that failure to mark the boundary had led to bloodshed as communities clashed over resources.

According to Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui, they were working with the National Land Commission and the Ministry of Lands

“We shall in 30 days engage surveyors from the two counties to install beacons on the boundary of the two counties so as to bring an end to the disputes,” he said.

He added that among the recommendations raised included engaging KenGen over the sale of the 3,000 acres to the firm by former officials.

He said that his government would engage the power generation company on the parcel of land where it is drilling several geothermal wells.

“There was a problem on how the land was sold but we should not dwell on this and instead look at how this problem can be resolved fully,” he said in Maella when, together with officials from his government, went to implement a report by the Ad hoc Committee on Ng’ati farm.   

He also called on the Registrar of Lands in Naivasha to change the names on a parcel of land that had been allocated to the Maasai community.
