Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has released information regarding the Buru Buru land Saga with a stern warning to land grabbers.
On Saturday, Sonko stormed the property which was being destroyed by goons hired by a private developer laying claim to the land which saw a school brought down.
According to the Nairobi boss, the goons were sent by Patrick Nderitu alias Livondo who he termed as a notorious land grabber. Sonko noted that the land question was a City Council Public Utility Plot which was surrendered for public use as a church and related activities.
The county allotted it to Public Trust registered under the Societies Act by the name GLAD TIDINGS CRUSADE.
"Nairobi City County Government as the Donor of the Public Property which is managed by the Trustees of the Public Trust, namely, GLAD TIDINGS CRUSADE has a perpetual right and interest to ensure that the public purpose for which the land was donated is never defeated or the land grabbed by greedy persons like Nderitu to divert it for private use," Sonko reiterated on Facebook
Further, Sonko revealed that Nderitu convinced the last born daughter to church's founder, Christine Opiko with her husband to forge signatures. He went ahead to claim the case was reported at Buruburu Police Station.
"Let me sound this warning to Nderitu and all his fellow land grabbers in Nairobi County. As long as I am the Governor of this great Nairobi City, they will only perpetuate land grabbing over my dead body," Sonko warned.
