A survey will soon be carried out to establish the boundaries of the Teita Sisal Estate and the neighbouring Singila Majengo community.

Mwatate MP Andrew Mwadime on Saturday told the residents that the survey will end the long rivalry between the investor and the residents.

He said that the land issue is heading to resolution.

Residents say the sisal plantation has extended its boundaries and encroached into community land at Singila and Majengo in Mwatate.

They have petitioned the government for new survey.

Residents say that the estate has expanded from its original 30,000 acres into Majengo and and Singila villages that have more than 6,000 squatters.

The sisal estate managers have ignored the parliamentary reports recommending that all public roads on the plantation be opened now for the residents to benefit.
