Kakuzi: Squatters in Kenya’s Murang’a county speak of ‘colonisation’ on their ancestral lands

Kenya’s Murang’a county is home to Kakuzi, the food producer and exporter that occupies some 15,904 ha. Land ownership in this fertile area is out of reach for many who consider it their ancestral home. But legal battles over land distribution could shape the economic outlook of the area. Some parties despair of ever receiving justice in their lifetime. Civil society groups have been working on the case for the past fifteen years.
