The firm was contracted in 1993.

We have tried to engage City Hall for the last 25 years to corporate so that we can complete this process,” Annan told the Committee. He disclosed that the sabotage was systematic that at one time all survey documents mysteriously disappeared in the county land offices in Dandora and Ruaraka. He said the loss of the essential documents has slowed down the process. The committee was further told that the parcel in Eastlands had also not be surveyed as required to allow the firms proceed with processing of the lease documents. The lease documents are required by the ministry of land to process title deeds.
