SEE ALSO :Waititu grilled again over graft claimsKalro Director Eliud Kiplimo, who received the land’s new title deed, said they were still fighting to recover grabbed land worth billions of shillings. “Land meant for research, valued at Sh10 billion in Naivasha alone, is in private hands. We have 26 land cases in court, with 400 acres still under threat from grabbers.” EACC Deputy CEO Michael Mubea said they would ensure all Kalro land, including 28 acres in Tigoni, was repossessed. The Tigoni land was used for potato research before illegally exchanging hands, Dr Kiplimo said. Two parcels worth Sh60 million, in the outskirts of Nakuru town, and which belonged to the Department of Survey before being grabbed, were repossessed and new title deeds issued to the Ministry of Lands. The anti-graft agency also repossessed a prime parcel worth Sh150 million in the heart of Nakuru town.
