NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 27 – The National Land Commission has gazetted its intention to acquire parcels of land in Kiambu, Kajiado, Nakuru, and Narok counties for the construction of Phase 2A of the Standard Gauge Railway line.

In the Gazette Notice dated December 22, NLC Chairman Muhammad Swazuri said those wishing to find out more about the planned acquisition can visit the County Coordinators offices in Kiambu, Kajiado, Nakuru, and Narok.

The Commission said owners of the affected parcels of land have fifteen days to inspect and put in their claims for compensation.

The amended land legislation states that failure to lay claim means the Commission can take over the ownership of those pieces of land in public interest on behalf of Kenya Railways Corporation without compensation.

The Land Act allows the commission to take possession of uncultivated or pasture or arable land upon expiry of the fifteen days from the date of publication of the notice of intention to acquire.
