Here in Kenya, if you use the term “land grabbing” pretty much anyone knows what you mean. It’s the process of people taking land that isn’t theirs to sell. They might represent themselves as real estate agents and sell you a land deed or title (that later turns out to be false), or it could be a person that just decides to put up a house on someone elses property etc. You’ll see signs all over the place that read:
“This land is NOT FOR SALE!”
Warning people to not be tricked into buying a title or deed for the property from some enterprising individual a.k.a. criminal.
Well, I’m gonna do a little “blog-grabbing” from my Nairobi friend, Naoma. Are you reading this right now?
I loved her most recent post on the life and sights of Nairobi so much, and really….couldn’t top it if I tried, so I wanted to share it all with you. She also brings a different perspective of life in Kenya that you all might enjoy….I know I do!
