Portland Cement Selling Land
Previously, the East Africa Portland Cement won a legal dispute in 2023 to evict squatters from 4, 298 acres of land in Machakos County after claimants failed to produce documents to prove ownership.
The directive followed a court ruling that declared the land a property of Portland Cement. The land in dispute had been occupied by some of the evictees for more than 10 years.
Mavoko residents were said to have settled on the land after EAPC PLC finished its mining operations on it a decade ago.
Later, the East African (EAPC Plc) in 2023 announced the selling of the disputed pieces of land within Mavoko, Athi River.
The cement company stated in a notice that it would give priority to individuals who were already occupying the said pieces of land.
“East African Portland Cement wishes to notify members of the public of its offer to sell the above referenced parcels of land (REGULARIZATION OF LR NO. 8784/144, 145 & 653 MAVOKO) via a regularization model,” the notice read.
Additionally, the notice stated that those who were being evicted ought to state their claim on the land within the following 14 days.
“First and preferential priority shall be offered to the parties currently are occupying sections of the said parcels. Those in this kind of situation are advised to state their claim of the same within 14 days from the date of this notice,” read the part of the statement.
