By a male, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of LEGAL LAND OWNERSHIP Kenya Land Ordinance is an authority that specifies the legal specified ownership of lands. People who are said to buy land are helped to transport the ownership of land from the previous owners. Although it costs a lot, people paid for their land that will remain forever for their coming generations to inherit . Title deeds are issued out to successful candidates. This in real sensebrings one to a sense of belonging. Nowadays, this act stops the land grabbing and also speculate the big tracks of land for people. Some of the individuals found to own land illegally are to be answerable to the Kenya Anti Corrruption Commission where they will surrender their land out, be jailed and pay out fines. This brings out the determination of people to work hard so as to own properties of their own. Read more.
