Activists stage protests in Mombasa over allegations of land grabbing.

Locals around coastal region led by “Concerned Citizen” human rights activist Bradley Ouna have protested against the alleged land grabbing by Mombasa Cement Company.  

The group has raised an alarm over the alleged grabbing of a road reserve around Mombasa’s Railway’s roundabout. 

“We are calling on the county government of Mombasa, the National Land Commission, and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission to investigate how that section of the road reserve was allocated to Mombasa Cement,” claimed Ouna. 

Ouna expressed realisation and in support of Mombasa Cement Company’s initiative to feed the poor, however, the group remains adamant and in disagreement on how the situation to award the cement firm the shed which they argue is sitting on a road reserve.

The activists have threatened to mobilise the public and bring down the structure in a week’s time, should the cement company not act accordingly. 

However, Mombasa Cement Company has rejected the allegations claiming that it lawfully purchased the parcel of property. 

The site was formerly owned by General Tyres, according to Samir Baloo, a Mombasa Cement employee and Tudor Ward MCA staffer. 

According to the MCA, Mombasa Cement had been using the land for a program to provide free meals to citizens of Mombasa, but the location has remained blocked owing to COVID-19, and the food programs are now being held at Kibarani.
