I own no land in Woodley Estate, says Mudavadi after reports of Land grabbing

Following media reports on Thursday that National Lands Commission revoked title deeds for parcels of land allegedly belong to a NASA politician, he has responded.

Amani National Congress Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi on Friday chided the media for “false “reporting.

The NASA co-principal stated he does not own any parcel of land in Nairobi’s Woodley Estate.

“Mudavadi has never owned and does not hold any title deed to any property in Woodley Estate, Nairobi for it to be alleged ‘reprocessed’ and the title ‘revoked’,” he said in a statement to newsrooms.

According to NLC, the NASA leader owned two parcels of land in Woodley Estate measuring 0.50 hectares.

The said pieces of land are for public utility and are under the care of the county government.

He said that he is a tenant of county house in Woodley Estate and has always paid his rental dues as required.

He said media should have confirmed with City Hall and contacted him before reporting.

“A cross-examination and fair reporting can confirm at City Hall,” said he.

He also dismissed claims that another parcel of land belonging to his late father Moses Budaba Mudavadi was repossessed and given back to Kakamega Golf Club.

“The club, through its Chairman, has confirmed there is no such incision or dispute in its land.”

He said that if there exists any title deed showing such allocation, it talks of fraud.

“If such an allocation and title deed exists, it must be a fraud perpetrated within the Ministry of Lands and the National Lands Commission.”
