An aspirant for the Matungulu parliamentary seat Magdalene Ndawa has promised residents of Kyanzavi neighbouring the Donyo Sabuk National Park title deeds once elected.
Ndawa who was addressing the residents of Kyanzavi in Matungulu, said that the people of that area have been living without title since independence and urged them to back her bid so that she pushes the national government to give them title deeds.
"As you know since independence, you have never received any title deeds, when you elect me I will push the national government to issue you with your deeds so that you will not lose your land," said Ndawa.
She further called on the national government to put up a fence around the park so as to control the human-wildlife conflict that has been happening from time to time as the residents have been chasing away buffaloes that have been destroying their crops.
"I am urging the national government to put up a fence so that wild animals do not come and destroy the crops of farmers and also to put an end to the human-wildlife conflict," she added. Ndawa further urged people of Matungulu to turn up in large numbers on election day so as to vote out bad leaders.
