Society to sue members for defaulting to collect title deeds for decades
Mwana Mukia Housing Cooperative Society based in Kahawa Wendani in Ruiru of Kiambu County has lost patience and now resolved to sue its members who have failed to collect their title deeds for their plots since the 1970’s.
The resolution was arrived at on Thursday during a meeting by the society management committee chaired by its Chairman, Robert Wairiri.
Despite of having processed title deed for its farms in Ruiru and Limuru, most of the members have unfortunately failed to collect their vital land ownership documents.
“Some of the title deeds have not been collected since 1979 yet we spent money and time to process them. Now we want to recover this money using legal means,” said Wairiri. He said some of these defaulters used panya routes to acquire dubious title deeds.
Wairiri said they would now instruct their lawyers to take legal action against the defaulters and recover the title deed fee using all available means including selling their plots.
He appealed to members of farm 4 whose names have errors in their certificates to report at the society offices at Wendani for rectification, soonest.
He said the processing of title deeds for Thika farm is ongoing while members for the farm six (6) are registering. He said the society is scheduled to hold its AGM on December 16.
The meeting was also attended by society vice chairman, J.W .Wainaina, secretary, Susan Wanjiru and Treasurer, Zacharia Openda.
