Keek-Onyokie youth protest subdivision of Iloodariak land

By Our Reporter.
Members of Keek-Onyokie Youth Peace Ambassadors are opposing attempts by land-buying firms to subdivide their acquired property into small plots.
They protest the intended the move on the agricultural land, at Elerai area of Iloodariak settlement scheme would lead to mushrooming of slums.
More than 200 youth stormed a meeting at Elerai and ejected members of a land-buying group and brought down all the tents before chasing them away.
Leaders of the youth group, Saitoh Kantet and Tobiko Supeyo, accused land buyers of going against locals’ wishes.
“We Keek-Onyokie Maasai must be respected. They own the land because they bought it, but no segmentation, which will lead to slums.” said Kantet.
They claimed the directors of such land-buying were now sub-diving said property into an eighth of an acre for sale to their members against the county land use policy.
Huge parcels of land had been taken up by private developers, especially in Kitengela, Kipeto, Isinya areas, leading to proliferation of slums, insecurity and environmental degradation.
