Turkana Community Land and Kenya Land Bill 2012
The Kenya Land Bill 2012 brings community land debates to life once more. Land in Kenya is an emotive issue which anchors Kenya citizens to their history, socio-cultural and political development. Turkana Technical Network welcomes current national debate on land. We see consultative forums as a way of ensuring communities participate in shaping laws and national processes that affect the way we interact and live on land. We take this opportunity to present a brief presentation on Turkana Community Land.
The Turkana Community has a traditional land ownership system which ensures equitable land resource sharing in the nomadic pastoralist lifestyle setting. The traditional land ownership system which minimizes intra-community resource-based conflict, in our opinion, can be adopted as the basis for equitable land ownership and resource use in the context of communal land ownership.
