Questions on who owns majority of Kenyan Prime lands is not new to Kenyan Citizens ears as it has been reoccurring over the years.

Kenya has 17 percent of it’s lands very arable and very productive including those at the highlands.

Out of the productive lands there 65% it are owned by only 20% of the Kenyan population in which most of them are the political families and also the business elites.

The issue of land ownership tracks back to before Kenya attained it independence from the British Colonialists who owned the arable lands.

The Colonialists were given land in the highland regions which were rich and very productive leaving the Kenyan with no place to settle.

The Africans were forced out of their lands to leave room for the white settlers.

The settlers therefore owned over 7.5 million Acers of agriculturally rich lands.

Lord Delamer who was part of the whites in the country owns close to one million Acers of land.

When independence knocked on Kenyan doors the politicians were in the forefront to buy the land hence leaving the other k Kenyans with no land to own.

This was clearly documented in the Ndungu report which stated that the lands were received illegally.

Land was a major bargainer used by politicians to settle their political scores and path to keeping political power.

Even the restricted lands were not left behind as they were equally shared among the leaders.

Till date some of the Kenyan lands are owned by foreigners despite the 2010 constitution preventing foreigners from owning land in Kenya.

This is because the foreign owners joined forces with Kenyans to own the land in partnership.

The desire to clean land mess has been a long walk as those given the mantle to set Kenyan lands in order end up in finger fights and blames.
Various land documents are missing from the Ministry of Lands with no clear owner of the lands.
