Taking Charge: Mombasa County residents at the forefront in finding a solution to the land issue in the County

Taking charge is the clear gesture Mombasa residents made on 24th March 2014 at the Treasury Square when a people-driven County Land Use Policy framework was officially handed over to the Speaker of the County Assembly Hon.
