Isaac Ruto to meet President Uhuru, his deputy over Mau evictions


Former Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto has said he will seek a meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto over the Ministry of Environment’s impending eviction of Kalenjins in Mau Forest.
Ruto said if not done humanely, the eviction will affect the lives of thousands of Kenyans most of which are supporters of the two leaders.
” We intend to see the DP, President on the issue of Mau in the coming weeks,” he said.
Security personnel have been deployed to the Maasai Mau forest to carry out the second phase of evictions, targeting some 10,000 illegal settlers.
This comes as the State, this week, published in the dailies 1,274 title deeds in the Mau complex for cancellation.
The Ministry of Land in 2018 sought court orders to nullify the titles which were “irregularly and unlawfully issued”.
The court in June granted the prayers asking the ministry to publish the titles, their owners and acreage they acquired.
Leaders from the Rift Valley have called for proper consultations on the planned Mau eviction.
