I am appealing for Government intervention,” Mwachanyuma told The Standard. According to her, a man who rented her land through an agreement has already acquired a title deed. She says there has been reluctance by land officials to act on orders of a Kwale court and the NLC since 2017. A report of the NLC public hearing dated August 22, 2017, upheld the adjudication done in 1972 and 1985 that recognised the ancestral rights of the Mwachanyuma family as occupants of the land. The report that was signed by former NLC chairman Muhammad Swazuri after a public hearing held at Kenya School of Government Matuga, also upheld the ruling of the Land District Tribunal vide claim number 32 of 2005 adopted as judgment of the Kwale Resident Magistrate’s court on December 7, 2006.
