Komarock Housing Cooperative Society members have been urged to avoid unnecessary land sales and instead invest on the lands to secure their future.

Speaking to members during one of the society’s meetings, the society’s chairman Bernard Maembe expressed concern over the increased land sales.

“Most of you inherited your land from your fathers hence you should focus on investing on the land to enable you create a future for yourself and your children,” he said.

He warned that some members had recklessly sold their land and ended up poor while others are battling land cases in courts of law.

Bernard Mungata, the society’s lawyer, joyfully told the members that the dispute about their KCB land tussle was coming to an end and that they can now develop the 700 acre piece of land.

He hailed former senator Johnson Muthama for helping in the fight to get back their land.
