Plan to settle Mau Forest evictees hits headwinds

What you need to know:

  • Rift Valley politicians in December identified different pieces of land totalling 68 acres in Tendwet, Sogoo and Ololulunga for the temporary resettlement of some of the 10,000 evicted families.
  • But an announcement by the government, through Rift Valley Regional Coordinator George Natembeya, says any land for those evicted from Maasai Mau Forest must be at least 10km from the cutline.
  • In response to Mr Natembeya's announcement, Emurua Dikirr MP Johanna Ng'eno accused the government of intimidation, harassment and trying to stop the resettlement.

Rift Valley politicians are facing headwinds in their plan to settle Mau families on a piece of land they bought in Narok South Sub-county.
