Kenyans who intend to purchase land in Koma, Kangundo road -Matungulu constituency have been advised to be extra careful. This was said by Matungulu MP Stephen Mutinda Mule last week.
The legislator also cautioned traders who are taking advantage to dupe innocent land buyers that they will be dealt with according to the law when they are caught.
“I want to tell Kenyans, if you are buying land in Matungulu Sub County please do a search of what is being sold. We have many unscrupulous traders who are even selling property belonging to other people. I want to warn such traders they will face the full force of the law.” Mule said.
This comes just says after state broadcaster Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) put up a caveat notice in local dailies cautioning that the land in Koma belongs to them. According to the daily nation, Kenyans are flocking Kangundo road because the land is cheap compared to other areas like Kitengela.
2 weeks ago, Government Spokesman Cyrus Oguna warned Kenyans to keep off over 400 hectares of land in Koma that he says belongs to KBC and was grabbed by some retired and current government officials.
Oguna said that the 499.5 hectares land is registered as Donyo Sabuk/Komarock Block 1/9218 in Machakos County. He accused Komarock ranching and farmer’s corporative society of grabbing the land from 2012 and dividing it into more than 600 plots which are being sold to unsuspecting Kenyans.
The Government spokesman further warned that this is purely con business and those who buy the land risks losing their money and being prosecuted.
Komarock ranching and farmers cooperative society chair Bernard Maembe dismissed the reports that the society had grabbed land and accused the Government of issuing contradicting information on the land. They blamed powerful politicians for creating the confusion.
