Challenges

  • The Lands docket budget was too small for this financial year thus officers have been unable to attend to fieldwork for the last six months.
  • From the beginning of this financial year, there has been confusion on where the A.I.E should come from. So far the docket has not received any funding from national government and thus disrupted the daily activities of the department.
  • Movements to the field have also been hampered with since Survey,Lands and Housing departmental vehicles have stalled down with no repairs forthcoming.
  • Another challenge is lack of clear understanding of Schedule Four of the Constitution of Kenya on devolved functions.
  • The docket had a vote of Kshs 145,000/- on fuel and repairs that has already been exhausted which a small allocation is considering the Lands dockets offers a lot of services to the public and involves a lot of travelling. The Lands, Housing and Urban development docket is waiting for revision of the supplementary budget in order to be facilitated to carry on work to the end of this financial year.
