These Rules of the National Land Commission implement provisions of the Land Registration Act in respect of conversion of public land into private land. The national or county government may, on its own motion or upon a request, identify the land and notify the Commission, in Form LA I set out in the Schedule, of its intention to convert the land from one category to another pursuant to section 9 of the Act. The Commission shall consider the notification on specified criteria. For example, the land must not be part of an ecologically sensitive area. In the case of a substantial transaction, the Commission shall refer the matter to the National Assembly or County Assembly for approval as the case may be. Public land may also be converted to community land. The Commission shall satisfy itself that the land shall be used for the benefit of the community as provided under Article 63 of the Constitution.
