Our traditional communities revered the
land, used it amicably and preserved the
environment. The seeds of unequal
allocation, evictions and land grabbing were
planted by the colonialists and nurtured by the
independent regimes that followed it. As if the
utterly skewed land policy in present day Kenya
is not bad enough, we now have foreign
'investors' seeking to 'purchase' our land to grow
food and other crops for export. A case in point is
the Qatar bid to procure rights over some 40,000
hectares in the Tana River Valley in return for
building a deep-sea port, all the while our people
are languishing in landlessness.
