Receiving the title deed of Thigirici land on Monday, Waiguru said it was an important moment for Kirinyaga County considering the land had been returned to the public after a long court battle sued the Government and a private developer.

He said that public land located in the Ndia constituency had illegally ended up in the hands of a person through co-operation between the developer and other officials in the existing jurisdiction.

“We have gone through a long process of litigation and finally we have 250 acres in the name of the County Government, this means we can now move on and set up an industrial garden as outlined in the County’s main development plan.

The Governor said the Industrial Park will be a powerful manufacturing hub that will serve the County as well as Mt. Kenya Province.

“The park will be a manufacturing and processing center, stimulating economic development and supportive infrastructure such as hotels and real estate,” he said, noting that such development would have a significant economic impact on the well-being of County residents.

Waiguru added that farmers from the County will have a wider market for their produce and additional revenue from value addition.

He said the industrial garden would be strategically located as the land is close to the Sagana Railway Station and comes after the region’s rail transport system was revived.

At the same time, the Governor warned anyone occupying public land to return it voluntarily insisting that the County Government ensure that all public land is owned.

Waiguru revealed that the County Government has acquired more parcels of land as well as 200 acres in South Ngariama which has been set aside for the construction of public services such as a university, health center and recreation areas.

At the same time he said the process of granting title deeds to the true owners of 17,000 acres of land in South Ngariama is underway.
