West Pokot, Nandi, and Baringo are among the counties where few women own title deeds.

This is according to a new survey released by the Kenya Land Alliance.

Only Western and Nyanza are doing worse, while women in Embu County own land more than women anywhere else, at 61%. By contrast, less than three percent of the women in Kisumu and Siaya own land.

The Kenya Land Alliance survey was conducted in 2018 at 43 land registration centres.

The report blames cultural barriers for the plight of the women in those counties.

Naitonally, 75% of men possess title deeds but only 21% of women access the same.
