Embu, EasternKenya

I was brought up in a farm in Kinangop, Nyandarua County. I work as an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya in Embu , an agricultural town. Drafting and attesting land sale agreements and leases is part of my work. I understand the benefits of farming with regards to food security and economic growth. I am concerned with the rate at which arable land is being converted for commercial use. Plants have been replaced with concrete.We need to rethink our approach to food security by preserving agricultural land.
