Government stops transactions, development at Olopito group ranch

The state has stopped land transactions and development at Olopito group ranch in Narok County after massive double land sale of plots in the area.

Narok County Commissioner Isaac Masinde who toured the area Monday stopped all the ongoing development in the area until a case that is in court is determined in a months’ time.

Masinde said initially, the land had only 165 members but ballooned to 400 members a situation that brought controversies over the piece of land.

Masinde said the issue had contributed to hiking cases of insecurity as some members who had initially bought the piece of land were threatened by the new occupants.

Narok County Land Registrar Top Chepkwesi said the last court order given from a Nakuru court ordered that the land should not be further subdivided, sold or any deals transacted on the land.

Chepkwesi said the subdivision that has been ongoing on the land was illegal as the issue is still pending in court of law.

He said the ongoing construction on the land should be stopped until the case on the land issue is fully resolved.

The Olopito Chairman Joseph ole Nchoe and the leader of buyers Allan Kamau narrate how the lands was divided and why they disagreed and their case is now in court and their wish is to see the court solve this issue.
