Land grabs 1
A new escalating scenario is currently emerging: big chunks of land are being sold or leased to big multi-national companies for tourism and horticultural enterprises and the local population cannot see the social, economic or environmental benefits.
This problem is especially affecting our area, the Laikipia district (in the Rift Valley Province), a semi-arid area where many “invaders” are taking advantage of the local population and seizing their land through cheap transactions.
Let me pay tribute to your magazine for highlighting these problems.
