Conflicts over land have been a major issue in many societies not only in Kiambu county but in other parts of Kenya as well as the rest of the world. The study was underpinned by the Conflict management theory. This study adopted a descriptive research design. The study was conducted in Kiambu County which has 12 sub-counties in which the study was conducted. The study found that the key strategies used in the management of conflict included courts, mediation, negotiation, arbitration and community mobilization. The study concluded that there were efforts in terms of strategies being put in place to manage cooperative land conflicts and these efforts were mainly fronted by the land buyers and tenants. The study recommended that the government, through the ministry of lands, should carry out mass sensitization on lands and land transactions.
