Otiende Amollo On Land Disputes

Otiende appreciated the Public Accounts Committee on the just-concluded case that was filed. It involved the land ownership where construction took place. Amollo said there was an issue about payment of certificates amounting to Sh16 million which had been paid before the work was done.

“They have started using it because of need. There was a question of flooding of the sales the construction of some bear farms. It was a question of some Sh 3.2 million that the contractor was to use for the purchase of water during construction. Instead,  they used water that was already pre-connected to the station. We have directed that money must be refunded. There was an issue of some payments of certificates amounting to 16 million which had been paid before the work was done. But we since established that after the issue being raised by Auditor General, that was settled. We have dealt with the question of title deed, and the title deed should come out at any time,” He stated.
