President Uhuru Kenyatta is in the Coast region where he has issued over 3,000 title deeds to excited residents as he embarks on a busy working tour.
First to receive the important land ownership document were residents of Kasidi in Rabai, Kilifi County where 2,169 title deeds were issued.
The President was accompanied by Cabinet Secretaries Fred Matiang’i (Interior) and Farida Karoney (Lands) and was received by area Governor Amason Jeffah Kingi and several Coast leaders.
He was later on expected in Mikahani, Mawemabomu and Chonyi villages to issue a further 853 title deeds to the residents who have struggled to get the documents for 30 years.
It has been a race against time as the President moved from place to inspect development projects as he seeks to cement his legacy.
He started by visiting the multi-agency team of Kenyan security officers undertaking a joint operational training in Boni Forest, Lamu County.
The President then inspected the ongoing construction of a 270-metre long wall to protect the cliff holding Fort Jesus World Heritage Site from sea erosion.
He also flagged off the Kenya Malaria Army and unveiled the Kenya-Cuba Malaria Vector Control Programme and unveiled the first locally manufactured malaria rapid diagnostic kit at the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme in Kilifi County.
Uhuru also announced the attainment of World Health Organization pre-qualification for the first locally manufactured malaria medicine.
