National Land Commission Mumias Town Plots Public Notice
MUMIAS TOWN PLOTS
The National Land Commission was established under Article 67 of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010.
One of NLC’s key function is to facilitate compulsory acquisition of land for public projects.
Through the Land Acquisition Act of 1968, the Government of Kenya acquired 402 acres of land in 1970 – 1972 to facilitate development of Mumias town and the proposed sugar factory. All project affected persons were fully compensated in monetary terms.
It has come to the attention of the NLC that the then land owners, who had been fully compensated, did not surrender their title deeds and some even returned to occupy the acquired parcels, contrary to the law.
A declaration is hereby being made that according to Section 40 (3) of the Constitution and Sections 107 – 35 of the Land Act of 2012, the subject land is all public land.
Notice is hereby given that all illegal occupiers, have 90 days to vacate the said land as directed by Section 152 A, B and C of the Land Laws (Amendment) Act of 2016 and Section 155 of the Land Act of 2012.
