Archbishop Ole SAPIT tells RUTO and his allies to stop politicizing Mau eviction - Tells UHURU to proceed with evictions

Monday July 30, 2018 - Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) Archbishop, Jackson Ole Sapit, has urged the Government of President Uhuru Kenyatta to proceed with the evictions to rid the Mau forest of illegal settlers.

Speaking at St. Stephens Cathedral ACK church in Kisumu on yesterday, Ole Sapit also castigated Deputy President William Ruto and his allies for politicizing and ethnicising the Mau eviction issue and blaming NASA leader, Raila Odinga, saying church supports the conservation of the forest.

“We want to urge the President not to relent in the preservation of the Mau Forest and any other forests in this country because without the preservation of nature we will not have a future.’

“The Mau complex is very critical,” said the Archbishop.

The Archbishop said a section of leaders from the region are now invoking ethnicity as the debate rages on over the fate of those who encroached the Mau forest, but maintained that the Mau complex does not belong to a single community.

He noted that the forest is a crucial resource for Kenya and the neighboring countries as a water catchment area.

“Preservation of that forest should not be politicised or ethnicised in any way.”

“Already we can see politicians from certain communities coming out to politicise this issue as if the forest belongs to a particular community,” he added.
