Efficacy of the trusteeship role of county governments in community land ownership
OKELLO, DIANA MITCHELL AKINYI
Land rights of people have to be protected as it is a constitutional right of every individual of the country. Both individuals and communities can own land in the country. Kenya has faced problems in regard to land in the past and legislations enacted to help curb this problem but the same problem of land grabbing of private, public and community land in the past for political and private interests is being extended to the relationship between devolution and land especially in community land. This paper aims to find out the place of community land today and if there are gaps in the current law.
This chapter will seek to show the problems involved with the county government’s trusteeship role in community land while looking at the history of historical injustices in the country, elaborate the purpose of the study, hypothesis relied upon by the study and the justifications for the study.
