Land Compensation Finalised

A resident of Kwale County finally received compensation for his land from the National Land Commission (NLC) thanks to the Commission. 

Mr. Edward Tunu complained to the Commission on behalf of Mwinyi Hamisi Mwalimu alleging the delay by the NLC to process compensation for land parcel number Kinango/ Mazeras/944 in Kwale acquired for purposes of the construction of the Standard Gauge Railway. The delay and the unresponsiveness from the NLC pushed him to complain to the Commission.
