The first set of the land laws were enacted in 2012 in line with the timelines outlined in the Constitution of Kenya 2010. In keeping with the spirit of the constitution, the Land Act, Land Registration Act and the national Land Commission Act respond to the requirements of Articles 60, 61, 62, 67 & 68 of the Constitution. The National Land Policy, which was passed as Sessional Paper No. 3 of 2009, arrived earlier than the Constitution, with some radical proposals on the land Management.

THE African Farmers Association of South Africa (Afasa) in the Free State has called for a second model to the land reform programme to complement the existing Proactive Land Acquisition Strategy (Plas) programme.

The body strongly maintains such a move will expedite the current land reform process and also save government money in the process.
