EACC Director General Halakhe Waqo
A lobby group has written to the Cabinet Secretary for Transport, lnfrastructure and Urban Development James Macharia to investigate an alleged grabbing of land belonging to the ministry by Ethics and Anti-corruption boss Dr Halakhe Wako in Isiolo.
In the undated letter received by the ministry on 29th March, 2018, Coalition of Citizens against Land Grabbing wants the Cabinet Secretary to investigate the circumstances under which the land located in Isiolo and which is the property of Public Works Department of the ministry ended up in Waqo’s hands.
“We therefore submit before your office this letter as a petition to investigate the matter and ensure that the National Land Commission begins the process of reverting the land to its rightful owner who is the Kenyan public,” says the letter signed by a Mohammed Boru.
The lobby says in the letter which has been copied the National Land Commission, Kenya National Commission on Human Rights and Parliament that the EACC director general has gone ahead to erect a six storey building on the land.
Further the lobbyists alleges that Waqo has also grabbed a 31 acres of land belonging to a community trust at Camp Garba in the same county.
