Forced evictions violate a number of internationally and nationally recognized human rights. However, it directly translates to a denial of the right to adequate housing which forms the very foundational basis for the realization of other rights. In the long run, it affects people’s social and economic livelihoods. However, forced evictions remain a practice that is majorly carried out in urban centers in Kenya. Premised upon this background, this paper takes a further relook into how the rampant corrupt practices in the land sector has a close interlink with forced evictions, the challenges faced in dealing with forced evictions and make recommendations going forward on how a solution to forced evictions can be found. In other words, it shows how land corruption leads to forced evictions which further violate human rights.
