UON Hosts Land Governance Action Framework Workshop

The University of Nairobi students and staff participated in a workshop on land governance action framework workshop. The one day event was held at Parklands Campus on June 27th, 2016.

Guest speaker, Prof Jacob Kaimenyi, Cabinet Secretary, ministry of Lands, said that every Kenyan has a right to land ownership. The laws of the land do not discriminate against gender, tribe, and age. He noted that some communities have unfair practices of land ownership where the female gender and people living with disabilities are segregated and denied right to ownership. He enumerated the various land reforms that the government has put in place like the national land policy which addresses the historical injustices and the security of tenure among other issues.
