Land retains a focal point in Kenya's history. It was the basis upon which the struggle for independence was waged. It has traditionally dictated the pulse of our nationhood. It continues to command a pivotal position in the country's social, economic, political and legal relations. It is not surprising therefore that land has since the colonial times to-date, been the subject of myriad state managed policy and legal interventions. Neither is it surprising that it has been the subject of many Commissions of Inquiry. At every epoch, the need to address systemic land related grievances has forced successive regimes to make adjustments to the policy, institutional and legal arrangements in the country's land relations. This Report is a product of an Inquiry by a Commission appointed by His Excellency the President, Hon. Mwai Kibaki, vide Gazette Notice No. 4559 dated 30th June 2003 and published on 4th July, 2003.
