The region in many years has been affected by incidents of land grabbing as most land owners have not legal title deeds to the land. This problem is common among many parts in the Coastal region.
The process of issuing title deeds was started by President Uhuru Kenyatta some times back in order to overcome the headache of evictions and land grabbing in the region.
