NLC to resettle residents of Mavoko slum

The government will resettle residents of Mavoko slum on 3,000 acres formerly owned by the East African Portland Cement in Athi River town.

National Land Commission chairman Muhammad Swazuri visited the land on Thursday and addressed the residents.

Six groups representing the community asked the government to allocate them the land.

“I thank you for being honest and requesting the government to give you the land, instead of grabbing it as is the case in many places across the country,” Swazuri said.

He said Portland no longer needs the land.
