Two pastors, 18 others over Lungalunga land occupation
By Weldon Kipkemoi | July 27th 2020
The police in Lungalunga have arrested two pastors accused of being behind illegal sale of government land in the area.
The two pastors were arrested alongside 18 other suspects accused of invading the 63,039-hectare State ranch in Kwa Ndoro.
Lungalunga police officers led by station sub-county commander Peter Nzimbi conducted raids yesterday morning and seized the suspects from their hideouts.
The suspects, according to the police, had sold the land to unsuspecting buyers who had already started putting up structures.
An acre could be sold at between Sh5,000 and Sh10,000, with false promise that titled deeds will be processed at a later date.
Lungalunga police boss Peter Nzimbi said officials from the ranch lodged complaints that its land had been subdivided to strangers.
