Lands CS Alice Wahome has on Thursday set the record straight on the ownership of the controversial Mavoko piece of land.
Addressing the media, the CS noted that ownership documents owned by Aimi Ma Lukenya are all fake and that the land still belongs to East Africa Portland Cement.
She continued by saying that share documents does not represent ownership causing more pain to the home owners whose houses are being brought down following a evacuation order.

“The question of ownership has no doubt, any other person purporting to be on that land is there, unfortunately, at their own risk…the land belongs to EAPCC.
I wish to advise the public that there are people out there to defraud members of the public to buy lands using share certificates.” Said CS Wahome
Also speaking was Lands PS Nixon Korir who noted that the documents owned by the company could have been fake documents printed at River Road.
“The title that was used to hoodwink Kenyans did not originate from this office, it’s a fake document that might have been printed in River Road…the ownership of the land from the documents that we have is not in dispute,” he said
Korir continued by saying that those responsible for the land sale should bare responsibility of compensating the affected home owners.
“The position we should take is that everyone would take responsibility…if Aimi ma Lukenya hoodwinked Kenyans, then they should compensate them,” said the PS
