Push For Controversial VoK Land Set To End

Written by Monica Makali || 

Members of the Komarock Housing Cooperative Society are overjoyed as they receive support in their struggle for land in Matungulu sub-county. 

During the annual General meeting held today, the society’s lawyer, Hon.Benard Muteti Mung’ata, confirmed to members that, former Machakos county senator Hon.Johnston Muthama Nduya, resolved to engage with the society members to ensure the case facing their land ends.

Mung’ata claims that the legal wranglings, which have lasted more than 10 years, arose as a result of the government’s forceful seizure of a section of around 23 acres of land from the then Voice of Kenya.

The remainder was to be donated to the community in appreciation for the society’s leadership in allocating public utilities as required by law. 

Mung’ata claims that the cooperative movement is under jeopardy, mostly due to poor leadership. 

The chairman of the society has warned members not to sell their properties, particularly land, without good reason. 

Members of Koma come from Machakos’ eight subcounties, which are kathiani,kangundo,Masinga,meala,Yatta,Matungulu,mavoko, and Machakos town.
