The National Land Policy in Kenya: Addressing Historical Injustices

October 2004
Kenya Land Alliance, Issues Paper No.2 of 2004

Contains the rationale for addressing historical injustices in a National Land Policy; the problem; the squatter problem; the coastal land problem; displacement occasioned by land clashes; lingering claims to land by certain communities; minority communities and their claims to land; neighbouring communities; the Nubian question; conclusion. Each section contains a policy statement with suggestions as to what the National Land Policy should state. KLA’s National Coordinator hopes that this Paper will initiate a well-informed discourse and public debate on the need for policy statements on historical injustices and will strengthen the campaign for a fair and just National Land Policy.
