Plot by RUTO and his allies to blame RAILA for the Mau evictions backfired terribly on them and now they blame this man

Monday July 30, 2018 - The scheme by Deputy President William Ruto and his allies to blame NASA leader, Raila Odinga, for the ongoing Mau Forest evictions seems to have backfired terribly on them and now they have shifted the blame on Environment Cabinet Secretary, Keriako Tobiko.

Led by Kericho Senator, Aaron Cheruiyot, and Kipkelion West MP, Hillary Koskei, Ruto’s allies accused Keriako Tobiko of sanctioning the ‘biased’ Mau Forest evictions.

They also accused Tobiko of misleading President Uhuru Kenyatta over the forest’s cutline.

They argued that although a buffer zone of tea bushes had been planted around the forest during President Uhuru Kenyatta’s first term in office, the ongoing evictions were designed to overshoot the mark.

“The Mau conservation issue is something that must be addressed objectively, soberly and fairly.”

“However, Mr Tobiko has proven that he is not fit to serve in the Government anymore because he has taken sides and is being tribal in the ongoing evictions in Mau Forest complex by declaring a non-existent cutline and which is meant to evict members of the Kalenjin community,” said Kosgei, who is also a member of the Parliamentary Environmental Committee.

On his part, Cheruiyot accused Tobiko of being part of a scheme by some Narok leaders to kick out members of the Kalenjin community from the area.

“There are two types of evictions being conducted in Mau Forest.”

“The first approach is genuine and is meant to kick out illegal settlers who invaded the forest and the second one is political and targets members of the Kalenjin community living a distance from the forest boundary,” said Cheruiyot.
