Carry out survey of Mwea land, orders governor
By Munene Kamau | May 25th 2015
Governor Joseph Ndathi has instructed county surveyors to embark on a fact-finding mission of the actual acreage of St Augustine Mwea Boys High.
The directive was issued on Saturday during the launch of the school’s Old Boys Association after a stakeholder raised the alarm.
The stakeholder who did not wish to be named for fear of reprisal from the alleged powerful individuals behind the scam, claimed 13 out of the 50 acres belonging to the institution have been grabbed.
"When this school was started way back in 1965, it had an acreage of 50 but a certain powerful, former District Commissioner when approached over the matter, poured cold water on the issues since he was allegedly one of the beneficiaries,’’ the stakeholder claimed.
During the meeting Mr Ndathi directed that a survey be carried out first to ascertain if indeed the 13 acres have been hived off and grabbed.
"Once we establish the grabbing has taken place, we will then use all the legal means available and also seek for the intervention of the National Land Commission to have allocations revoked,’’ he said.
He warned that any other land that has been grabbed will also be repossessed.
During the launch of the alumni, it was also resolved that the school, whose infrastructure is dilapidated, be given a facelift as the institution prepares to celebrate its Jubilee anniversary.
