Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji has directed anti-graft officials to arraign 14 people and three companies over suspected land fraud.

The directive was issued after the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) submitted a report on investigations touching on criminal activities involving the National Land Commission (NLC), Kenya Railways Corporation (KRC) and Ministry of Lands.

In a statement published on Twitter on Saturday, the EACC says its investigation revealed that Lands ministry irregularly allocated and registered parcels of land on the Railways Reserve.

“Further, NLC officials fully cognisant of that fact (above) proceeded to irregularly and illegally award and compensate the entities and persons in whose favour the registration was done. Regrettably, KRC who is the custodian of Railway Reserve actively participated in the entire process of compensation undertaken for and on their behalf by NLC,” said the statement issued by the DPP and posted on
