The data was presented in tabular form, pie charts and bar graphs with frequencies and percentages. The study findings revealed that 72% of the respondents were the majority who were male and the remaining 28% of the respondents were female. This implies that most of the respondents were men due to societal beliefs that men are majorly the owners of land and thus usually engaged in land conflict management with other community members. The study concludes that through participation ordinary people are given the opportunity to have a say in how their environment should be planned and developed in future. and that people are able to influence the final outcome of planned action. The study recommends that there is a need for enforcement of the law by the local council to safeguard the land of the community. It is necessary to conduct reporting of land issues to the police to ensure and grant security of land of the real owner.
