Vice Chair Message

To achieve its broad mandate, the Commission has put in place a robust, highly skilled and experienced secretariat that has provided the much needed support in managing public land on behalf of the National and County Governments. In  this regard, our services have been cascaded
to the Counties. The delegation of these important functions have gone a long way in taking services closer to the people as well as strengthening community and local level participation in land management. The committed County Land Management Boards (CLMBs) have the responsibility of processing development applications.

The Commission in collaboration with key stakeholders conducted research on various thematic areas with a view of strengthening
the Commission’s grasp over pertinent land matters. Findings have been shared with stakeholders in various forums. I wish to thank all our partners for the support they have given us during this formative stage, Commissioners and Staff for their focused commitment and dedication to duty and the people of Kenya for trusting us with this noble role.

Chairman's Message

It’s now three years since the establishment of the National Land Commission. Over this period the Commission has made tremendous strides in implementing key land governance mandates bestowed on it by the Constitution, the National Land Policy and the various land statutes. However, this success has not been without challenges as enumerated elsewhere in this review. 

For a long time, Kenyans have yearned forc a solution to the myriad of historical land injustices that have been with them from time immemorial. During the period under review, the Commission in collaboration with key stakeholders drafted several bills to address investigations and adjudication of historical land injustices. These bills formed the basis for the amendment of the land laws that were recently enacted. We have also conducted successful review of grants and dispositions of public land that culminated in restoration of land to public institutions. 

A case in point is the Lang’ata road primary school. Going forward we intend to work closely with relevant stakeholders to migrate land administration and management to a digital platform which will be made possible through implementation of the National Land Information Management System. We remain fully committed to the aspirations of the people of Kenya in promoting and spearheading land reforms.
