51 land owners in Kajiado and Makueni counties where the Standard Gauge Railway intents to pass want the Government to undertake a lawful inquiry into land acquisition as well as take into consideration their participation into the process failure to which they will institute judicial proceedings in 14 days.
They have written to the lands cabinet secretary, National Land Commission chair, the AG and the Kenya Railways Corporation Chair through their advocate Kethi Kilonzo that they have been declared landless after the government only compensated them for buildings developed on their land.
They claim SGR project facilitators are making payments for their land to different and unknown persons. And that the government did not publish any notice on compulsory acquisition of their land and failed to relocate them.
