Patrick Makau King’ola accused of Land Grabbing by Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua
In November 2015, Machakos County Governor Alfred Mutua asked the EACC to investigate the Mavoko MP claiming he was involved in an attempt to grab 13,000 acres of a company’s land.
The Machakos Governor said MP Patrick Makau is among senior officials involved in “massive corruption” concerning the East African Portland Cement Company property.
“We are aware that interested groups involving senior government oﬃcials and brokers are involved in a plot to grab and sell off the land,” Mutua said.
“The land is not and has never been for sale. It is public property and there has been no plan to parcel or sell it,” he added.
In a letter, Mutua asked the commission to swiftly investigate the alleged attempt to grab the land saying it had no squatters but that people were placed on it to justify the grabbing.
“Anyone who has purchased parcels of the land should consider themselves to have been conned,” he said, and directed all occupants to leave. “If this matter is not handled expeditiously, we fear it may culminate in blood shed,” he said.
