Over 70,000 residents of Nakuru County have been issued title deeds in the past one month during the ongoing titling program initiated by President Uhuru Kenyatta two years ago. Governor Lee Kinyanjui however has expressed concern that a high number of land disputes pending in Nakuru courts are slowing the program meant to issue title deeds to at least 100,000 landowners by end of the year. Kinyanjui indicated that the title deeds had been given out to landowners within Kuresoi South, Naivasha, Rongai, Njoro, Subukia, Bahati and Gilgil Sub Counties. He added that a further 20,000 title deeds will be issued to landowners in Mai Mahiu and Longonot in Naivasha Sub-County and in Kabatini, Githioro and Dundori locations within Bahati Sub-County by June this year. Other beneficiaries will be drawn from Polepole, Salgaa, Muchorwe and Kibunja villages within Subukia, Rongai, Kuresoi South and Molo Sub-Counties respectively.
