Sharif Athman Ali on LAPSSET land Compensation
Lamu County leaders have accused Lands Secretary Charity Ngilu of interfering with the compensation of hundreds of farmers whose lands were alienated for construction of the new Lamu port.
Governor Issa Timamy, Lamu East MP Ali Athman Sharif and his Lamu West counterpart Julius Ndegwa said Mrs Ngilu had become the biggest obstacle to the compensation that was initially scheduled to be completed in November.
They accused her of causing the delay in the construction of the multi-trillion Lamu Port-Southern Sudan-Ethiopia Transport (Lapsset) Corridor project.
The project has been hampered by feuds between Mr Ngilu, the National Land Commission (NLC) and the local leadership over the authentic list of land owners to be compensated by government.
