The lands CS said the role of Government is to provide an enabling environment that encourages the private sector to invest more and to also improve the ease of doing business.

Prof. Kaimenyi spoke when he addressed Kenya Property Developers Association (KPDA) 10th Anniversary at a Nairobi Hotel.

“My Ministry is working on development of a Land Valuation index in order to put a regulation that will govern acquisition of land by the government for infrastructural projects.” Said Prof. Kaimenyi.
