Muhoroni/Koru ward MCA Julius Genga has turned to Kisumu County Assembly to help resolve the land dispute within Koguta community in his ward.
Genga says the National Land Commission had issued a gazette notice early this year giving back the community its land.
He says the community has been at logger heads with the Kalenjin community in Kericho County over the border.
The MCA says the Commission had listened to the cries of Koguta community and issued an order that they be given back their land.
Speaking to the press in Kisumu after presenting a motion before the Assembly over the land dispute, Genga hailed the step by the Assembly that is set to direct the county land department to help in subdivision of the land to the locals.
He says their neighbors are not happy with the Commission over their directive giving ownership of the land to Koguta community.
Genga says the community has suffered as a result of being curved into Kericho County yet no development has been advanced to them from that county.
He says Koguta community every decade has been counted during census within Kericho side.
Following the declaration by the Commission, Genga says this year’s census set for August they must resist being counted in Kericho side.
He says Kisumu County has ever been initiating development in the community and wondered why they must be counted in Kericho County.
