The Coast region is badly affected by land conflicts, land rights activist have said.
The activists say the current situations witnessed in Kwale and Kilifi counties should worry the government before it’s too late.
Land rights lobby ‘Residents land protection organisation of Kenya Chairperson Dewelly Nyambu said the government has chose to remain mum despite cries from Coastal residents being evicted every day.
Nyambu warned that the pain among Coast people may erupt and breach the prevailing peace in the region.
“The situation at Msambweni in Kwale County and Kikambala in Kilifi County is heartbreaking, do we even have a government in place?” posed Nyambu.
He blamed the judiciary for always ruling in favour of the rich paving way for daily evictions in the two counties.
Nyambu said all land cases should be solved right at the ground and not in courtrooms.
“If you do not bribe, you will never win any land case in court, you will be evicted nonetheless,” noted Nyambu.
He also criticised the Kwale and Kilifi county governments for showing less concerns as locals gets evicted every day.
“We only see our leaders singing about needless 2022 politics, who will come our rescue?” He added.
Nyambu said the organisation together with other actors has filed several court cases in regards to land conflicts in the region but they have reaped totally nothing from the corridors of justice.
He revealed that most of those grabbing the land and even threatening to shoot locals are politicians and other powerful government officials.
