The Ministry of Land is now under investigation following an alleged sex scandal at the Ardhi House offices.

Detectives indicate that focus is on the registry section where senior officials are accused of sexual abuse and making unwanted sexual overtures towards junior female staff and interns.

According to complainants, despite the matter being reported to Principal Secretary Nicholas Muraguri, no action has been taken against the culprits.

Based on the allegations, the ministry was last week forced to cancel night shifts at the registry after interns and female employees went on a go-slow to protest inaction from the top ministry brass.

However, Muraguri declined to comment on the matter.

The night shift was started to help clear the backlog of files now in disarray with officials warning it could delay the issuance of land titles.

Sources at the Ministry one of the randy officials was ejected from a county in Rift Valley owing to allegations of sexual abuse and massive corruption.

Reports indicate that though the Human Resource Department at Ardhi House is seized of the matter, it has apparently failed to take action against the official.

On Friday, detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations are said to have launched a probe after female staff took to social media to express their frustrations.

Detectives have appealed to the victims to come forward and help the investigations.
