Nasa co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka has declared to fight in court a move to reclaim ownership of part of his vast land in Yatta, Machakos County.
Kalonzo Tuesday confirmed that part of his land was among the parcels being targeted for repossession by the government.
Mr Musyoka said he was among the 66 individuals and entities whose parcels the government has claimed were illegally acquired from the National Youth Service (NYS) and have been listed for repossession.
He indicated he will challenge the move in court.
“It is serious witch-hunt which we must fight. We are already looking at it,” Mr Musyoka
NYS Director-General Richard Ndubai Tuesday listed the targeted pieces in an advertisement .
“It has come to the notice of the department (of public service and youth) that a number of individuals acquired specific parcels of land without the knowledge or consent of the department,” said Dr Ndubai.
He added: “This is, therefore, to notify the individuals and or entities and the public that the de jure registered owner of the said parcels is the National Youth Service. The department, therefore, does not recognize any claim whatsoever that any individual or entity has over the said parcels of land.”
He then gave the affected parties 14 days to voluntarily surrender the land, failing which it will be repossessed at their cost.
