Kituo Meets Magarini Salt Belt Community

AJWS PICKituo Meets Magarini Salt Belt Community

Kituo Cha Sheria in collaboration with American Jews World Service (AJWS) held a successful one-day event in Gongoni area, Magarini Sub-County of Kilifi County.

The meeting held on 18th April, 2018 was to sensitive the Community living in the Magarini Salt Belt on their land and environmental rights. Over the years, the rights of those living along the salt belt have been infringed upon on so many fronts. These violations are largely attributed to the salt mining firms and the Government of Kenya. Kituo in collaboration with the local communities and like minded partners are working on various strategies to protect, preserve and uphold the rights of the locals. Part of the strategy is Kituo’s intention to file a Public Interest Litigation case regarding environmental and land issues in the Magarini salt belt in Court.The activities in Kilifi are spearheaded by Kituo programme officer Zedekiah Adika.
