The Causes of Land Conflict in our community are as follows:
Existence of big families due to high birth rates in our community and as a result, there is scramble for land from the neighborhood families to fit the family members hence causing land conflict amongst families.
Excessive greed for money especially by the youths that tend to sell away family land hence causing land conflicts amongst household in the families. Inadequate knowledge on land policy by the local people in the community thus grumble for land at the end of the day.
Self-interest by the elders in the families that are so uncooperative in the families by passing wrong judgment amongst family’s household as regards land distribution hence causing land conflict amongst families’ members.
Long-term enmity amongst families or between families hence they normally take into accounts such grade to grab or fight for each others land. Family advantage by some family that is to say the rich families normally use their position to intimidate the poor and grab away their land hence causing land conflict.
The idea of quick money business by the youth who in most cases see land as the only resources that can earn them enough income hence they are being encouraged to sell away their ancestral land.
PROPOSED SOLUTION TO LAND CONFLICTS.
Enforcement of by law by the local council to safe guard the land of the community.
Reporting of land issues to the police to ensure and grant security of land of the real owner.
Planting of trees for clear demarcation by the various families.
Strengthening of the land board and land committees formed to handle land and land related issues.
Organization of community dialogues on land issues amongst the different community member.
Training of the community members on various land policy.
Sensitization of the community members on land related issues so as to avert high risk of land conflicts in the community.
