The institution of Surveyors of Kenya ISK, has urged Kenyans to stop politicizing every step taken by the government on land reforms.
The Institution expressed concern over interference on matters focused on solving land issues in the country.
ISK Chairman Mr. Paul Wambua said he believes there has been progress in the issuance of title deeds, which he termed as a big step forward.
“I think there has been progress for example the issuance of title deeds, for example the Waitiki issue land issue, those people were squatters now they are land owners, so the “mwananchi” benefited because they can now use the document to get loans, and improve their lives”, said Wambua.
Wambua said the process of surveying, and issuance of the certificate was done in the right manner, and people should appreciate it.
Mr. Wambua also expressed satisfaction with the partnership between the ministry of land and the National Land Commision, in solving land issues in the country.
“At least now they can work together, because all of them serve the same citizen, and I think this is a big achievement in the land reforms in the country,” added Wambua.
ISK is the organization of land sector professionals comprising valuers, geospatial and land surveyors, registered estate agents, property managers, building surveyors, land and facilities managers.
