At the event in Ardhi House, Uhuru said the time has come for the National Parks and Reserves and reserves to have their title deeds to protect them from land grabbers. In addition, he said that talks of issues of land should not be the norm but solutions on matters regarding land should be brought about.

The President furthermore added that the resourcefulness will boost the local industry and will provide job opportunities. The government has put out an initiative to produce roughly five million Kenyans within seven years.

He acknowledged the works of Kitui Governor, Charity Ngilu, in improving the land sector. He further added that the current achievements began when Ngilu was a minister.

The Head of State says the move has permitted Kenyans to grow and have the confidence in ownership of land. It has also revealed that the process of handing the title deeds to Kenyans will be ongoing in different parts.

The governors were as well challenged in setting aside pieces of land in the counties for local investors who will in turn promote products manufactured locally. Similarly, they were urged to do local search for Kenyan products and give the Kenyan products a priority.

“Find ways to expand your towns without chasing investor’s away because of high land rates. We must have government land that is affordable to business people,” said Uhuru.
