Was Uhuru duped into presenting almost 50,000 ‘fake’ title deeds? – Nairobi News

It has now emerged that President Uhuru Kenyatta was duped into presenting dummy title deeds at Jacaranda Grounds May last year.

The revelations emerged during a Nairobi County Assembly Planning Committee sitting where it was revealed that during the ceremony, where President Kenyatta presented 50,000 titles, only 50 titles were genuine.

Appearing before the committee chaired by Waithaka MCA Anthony Kiragu, City Hall Lands and Housing executive was hard pressed to explain who lied to the President into unknowingly presiding over the handing over of the titles when only 50 were ready.

“As a committee, we want to know who lied to the President that 50,000 titles were ready whereas that was not the truth,” demanded Mr Kiragu.

Mr Kerich confirmed that only 623 title deeds have been issued to residents of Eastlands since President Kenyatta launched the exercise last year.

The Head of State while announcing that he had issued 50,000 title deeds to the residents in a move aimed at unlocking more than Sh20 billion through business and investment, also promised that 100, 000 titles will be released by the end of 2018.

BENEFICIARIES

Mr Kerich, though admitting that the process has taken longer than expected, said that City Hall was to issue only 30,000 titles with the rest being handled by the national government through the Ministry of Lands.

“Out of the 50,000 title deeds, the county was only supposed to do 30,000 with the rest being handled by the national government. Currently, we have another 27,000 ledger records (mainly from Dandora Registry) have been digitized at the Ministry of Lands reading for printing of titles upon preparation and registration of corresponding lease documents,” said Mr Kerich.

He further said that Governor Mike Sonko is set hand out 423 title deeds that have already been processed with another 1,200 having been forwarded to acting County Attorney David Oseko for sealing and signing.

Beneficiaries of the titles, mostly in the Eastern parts of Nairobi included land acquired through site schemes, land buying companies, the National Social Security Fund, Civil Servant Housing Schemes, those in informal settlements and Public Facilities.

“There is a misconception regarding the number of title deeds to be provided by the county government. The 50,000 title deeds to be issued last year were a collective from the county as well as the Ministry of Lands and we did that figure based on a realistic target we saw could be met,” he said.

However, Mr Kerich was put to task by Mr Kiragu why the five law firms engaged by the county government to manage the titling process continued to collect money from residents without any work being done yet City Hall has a legal department.

PUBLIC COMPLAINTS

The Lands executive said that the decision to hire five external legal firms to conduct the process was because City Hall’s legal department is completely depleted and lacking in capacity informing the engaging of the five law firms – Miller and Company Advocates, Okundi and Company Advocates, KTK Advocates, MMC Africa Law and Kamau, Atudo, Macharia Advocates.

“Our legal department is understaffed and that’s why we chose to hire five external law firms because if we chose to do it internally it would probably take us 10 years. The fee of Sh30,000 was also the bare minimum that the firms could charge and we felt it was fair,” said Mr Kerich.

Mr Kiragu said the ward representatives have been receiving complaints from the public that the five law firms have been collecting money from members of the public for eight months yet only623 titles have been issued.

Mr Kerich, however, defended the law firms saying that the process had experienced problems such as political interference where leaders have been inciting the residents not to pay Sh30,000 conveyance fees to law firms involved in the process.

“Our biggest challenge is that politicians tell their constituents not to pay telling them they should be getting them for free. If someone has told them not to pay yet they are required to pay Sh30, 000 then the process comes to a standstill,” he said, adding that the titles for those who had paid were being processed.

“We admit that we are way off our target but we are even seeking this committee to help us fast track the process since you as members represent the people,” he added.

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Love At First Sight?

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

”I’m a single boy again now😪😱!! Now with the standards you set who will fit in🤷🏿 who will fill your shoes??But Si Ni Life… But for now Kill Them with your AWESOMENESS and SECURE THE BAG!!! Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise. Plus there will always be space for you in my Heart and Kidney🙊🙈🙏🏿.”

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
