[News] Kenya National Land Commission's landmark decision on tea plantations

Dear all,

Sharing this news from Kenya:

In a decision published in the Kenya Gazette on Thursday, three county governments have been handed a major win in their push to re-survey the land on which the tea estates owned by multinational companies sit to establish the actual acreage…The NLC has directed that extra land found after the re-survey should revert to the county governments to hold it in trust on behalf of the local communities.

For the last seven years, the three counties have been pushing for the lease terms, which they said have for decades been shrouded in mystery and should be made public, the land rates and rent be revised upwards.
