Governor Mutula Kilonzo Jr has made a strategic move to insulate public utilities against encroachment and grabbing by distributing 600 title deeds to them.

During the exercise held at his office compound, Tuesday, Mutula said encroachment of public utilities in Makueni has been a big hinderance to development by way of protracted disputes and court cases orchestrated by greedy and unscrupulous cartels. This vice is more rampant in most of Makueni’s urban centres.

To put a permanent stop to this vice, the Department of Lands and Urban Planning has mapped all public utilities for survey and titling across the county.

Among the institutions which received titled deeds are health centres, ECDE centres, County Technical Training Institutes, Dams, Churches and the Agricultural Training Centre- Kwa Kathoka.

Governor Mutula also directed the Lands docket to prioritize resolving pending succession issues faced by members of the public. This, he said, will put an end to the many cases of family land tussles which have occasionally led to unnecessary bloodbath.

Among those in attendance were Deputy Governor Lucy Mulili, County Speaker Douglas Mbilu, Leader of Majority Kyalo Mumo as well as County Land Registrar Rose Soo.
