Deputy President William Ruto has said the National government will issue 50,000 title deeds in Nairobi county.
Speaking during a Sunday service at PCEA Evergreen Church in Runda, the DP said the Jubilee administration is committed to resolving all the problems affecting Kenyans, especially on land matters.
“President Uhuru Kenyatta and I take the matter of Nairobi very seriously. We have 50,000 title deeds for Nairobi and we will issue them out soon,” he said.
Ruto, who was accompanied by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, reiterated the government’s commitment to solve problems afflicting Kenyans.
“We know there are a lot of challenges, but we will fix them,” he said.
Sonko said they will protect all property in Nairobi from grabbers.
“We are going to protect all the people, irrespective of their religion, tribal, race or their financial background. I have personally helped protect a lot of land belonging to churches from grabbers who were preying on them,” he said.
The governor said they will not sit back and watch as widows, orphans and other less fortunate people in the county get thrown out of their land or property.
At the same time, he said they are firmly behind Deputy President William Ruto’s presidential bid in 2022, adding that there are some cartels who want to kill the vision.
“There are cartels in the system who want to use blackmail concerning the 2022 politics. However, let us focus on building the nation and avoid being devious,” he said.
During the church fundraiser service, Ruto donated Sh3 million and another Sh3 million from President Uhuru Kenyatta. Sonko donated Sh1 million.
The service was also attended by Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu, his Kajiado counterpart Joseph ole Lenku, Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja, Nominated Senator Beth Mugo, MPs Kanini Kega (Kieni) Timothy Wanyonyi (Westlands), Moses Kuria (Gatundu South) among other leaders.
