Baringo Senator Gideon Moi condemns Mau evictions and states that the president should take charge of the operation in order to ensure the process goes well in a humane manner. Get all the facts and details of the whole news.

Gideon Moi who is also the chairman of KANU challenged the national and county governments regarding the eviction of Mau residents to take charge and safeguard their properties and lives during the whole operation.

As reports TUKO - Kenya news, the senator gave a warning that the operation will not be tolerated if it is not handled carefully. He went on to state that he will consult the government regarding the problem in order to find a long lasting solution. He appealed to President Uhuru Kenyatta to take charge and make the process run in a humane manner like it’s supposed to be. He also gave food donations to those residents that were living in the Mau forest.

Gideon Moi, however, was not alone in this whole situation. The senator was accompanied by Isaac Ruto who is the former Governor of Bomet, and Nick Salat, who is the Secretary General of KANU.  The senator also went on to urge the politicians of Rift Valley to stop the incitements they were making against the efforts of the government for the conservation the Mau forest. He stated that the Mau people are citizens that clearly follow and abide by the law and there hasn’t been any time that they have gone beyond the cutline. Therefore, they don’t deserve to be mistreated during the operations as they have been through the razing down of their houses.

He also spoke for those residents who had title deeds saying they must be respected because the National Land Commission was the one who had issued those title deeds. A small group of Rift Valley leaders also stated that Uhuru should break the silence regarding the Mau evictions which has made locals very angry. These politicians were led by Kipchumba Murkomen, the senator of Elgeyo Markwet. He asked president Uhuru to visit and see to the whole issue and not to rely on information provided by the brokers which may be misleading, and declare if he was for the protection of the affected families from the evictions.

But that was not all, on Saturday July 21, William Kamket the MP of Tiaty told his Rift Valley counterparts to wake up and take up responsibility and action regarding what is happening to their fellow clansmen at Mau. Kamket who is a great ally of Gideon, went on to state and accuse Deputy President William Ruto of being involved in the Mau evictions.

The Tiaty MP went all out on Kipchumba Murkomen for claiming that Raila Odinga, the opposition leader was behind the evictions of Narok locals due to his handshake with President Uhuru Kenyatta. He said that Murkomen was trying to declare Ruto and the government free from guilt of what they have subjected the residents of Mau to in the eviction saga. He went on to say that Deputy President William Ruto is the one to fully blame for the issue and that there was no reason for the leaders to hide the facts from the people regarding the Mau evictions.

He mentioned Kipchumba Murkomen and said that no amount of denial will erase the fact that the Deputy President is behind the whole incident and that he was the one who ordered for all of the evictions. He further said that it is a classic case of what goes around comes back around, and tweeted in Swahili saying that “Malipo ni hapa hapa duniani”.

The Secretary-General of KANU, Nick Salat also spoke out and went on to warn the leaders against politicizing the whole situation and called for sober deliberations. He also spoke on behalf of the affected families and urged the government to compensate them.
