Residents vow market land will not be grabbed
SEE ALSO :The ‘curse’ of Egyptian presidentsMr Ochanda said the land was bought by the defunct local municipal council and turned into a livestock market. Another resident, Wilfred Sungura, called on the Department of Lands, Housing and Urban Planning to intervene. “The land was sold to the municipal and the owner died a long time ago. We are surprised that someone is claiming ownership of the parcel. Nobody will put up any structures on the land as long as we are here,” he said. Derick Owiti, another resident, said those eyeing the land should engage the county instead of digging it up to hamper business. "This is the oldest market in the county and people come from as far as Kisumu and Kakamega to buy cows, sheep and goats every Saturday,” said Owiti.
