Mwana Mukia Housing Cooperative Society based in Kahawa Wendani in Ruiru, Kiambu County has resolved to sue its members who have failed to collect their title deeds for their plots since 1970s.
The resolution was arrived at during a meeting by the society’s management committee chaired by its chairman Robert Wairiri.
“Inspite of having processed title deeds for its farms No 1, 2, 3 and Limuru, most of the members have unfortunately failed to collect their vital land ownership documents,” Wairiri said.
“Some of the title deeds have never been collected since 1979 yet we spent money and time to process them. Now we want to recover this money using legal means,” said Wairiri. He said some of these defaulters used panya routes to acquire dubious title deeds.
Wairiri said they would now instruct their lawyers to take legal action against the defaulters and recover the title deed fee using all available means including auctioning their plots.
“After getting a court order, we will auction their plots to get back society’s funds and direct the same to the intended purposes,” emphasized society’s vice chair, J.W Wainaina.
He appealed to members of Farm 4 whose names have errors in their certificates to report at the society offices at Wendani for rectification, soonest.
He said the processing of title deeds for Thika farm is ongoing while members for the farm six (6) are registering.
