Kenyans back Mau evictions, lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi


Many Kenyans back the ongoing Mau evictions, lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi has claimed.
The senior counsel who took to Twitter divulged that the move to flush out the squatters and save the water tower should not be a topic of discussion.
However, he has noted that the government should be responsible and resettle the evictees and find out how the Tea factories based in the area will be managed.’
‘Restoration of the Mau forest and removal of squatters and the HUGE TEA FACTORIES is not negotiable. This exercise is supported by 99% of Kenyans. The government must be humane in the exercise and help in the resettlement of the squatters… and the TEA FACTORIES?…can we have a list…,” tweeted Ahmednasir.
His remarks go against those from a section of Rift Valley leaders who have termed the eviction illegal and politically instigated.
One of the anti-eviction crusaders Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei has termed the evictions political and targeted at Deputy President William Ruto.
“It is not even about tribes or regions, but about a few individuals who are power-hungry … and the issue of the referendum, lifestyle audit, corruption propaganda and now the Mau issue are all targeted at one person.
“The evictions are a targeted campaign against Ruto 1`2to prevent him from becoming the president in 2022,” said Cherargei.
Government spokesman Cyrus Oguna has said the order was given from President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government in a bid to conserve the environment, as more evictions in Mt Kenya and Aberdare forests will occur.
