Friday August 31, 2018 - A public inquest has been opened into historical land injustices where Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji was accused of acquiring squatters' land when he served as the Coast Provincial Commissioner in the 1990s. 

According to reports, the inquest was ordered by none other than his own son - the Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji, who was ashamed of what his father is accused of doing.

Squatters, who appeared before the National Lands Commission inquest committee, said that the Senator, who is DPP Noordin Haji's father, acquired and sold the land in question to a charitable organisation.

They told the inquest committee that they wanted the land to be repossessed and returned to them.

During the proceedings, the family of one Kazungu Moli claimed that the Senator acquired the land in the 1990s and later sold it to the Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation.

  1. No sacred cows, the fathers are either dead, dying or aged and soon to die. It is the time of the Chongin Kaplelach generation to save the nation as spoken off by the Nandi seers of yore. Unye, Noor and Myselfu belong to that age-set! Man Ruto is the younger version if he was born in the last quarter of the sixties decade. But if later then no wonder a lot of mud seems to stick to him. The two age sets that follows Kaplelach are terrible ones. That is why we have had trouble during their moranships.

    We cannot wait to see Maina and Chumo being reborn. Kimnyigei and Nyongi are bad news, especially Kipnyigei.... they are so full of themselves no wonder they are so appropriately named. Another bad egg is the Kipkoimet. They precede Kaplelach and are hard headed. Indeed they are. The Sawa are okay, the current wazees who used to carry a comb in their coat pockets, Rexona and parted their hair in Komerera style... Remember the Late Anyona and Mandela anyone? That is the lot that was spawned at the cross roads of acquiring knowledge ior remaining bakward. Those who went to school became leaders and those who did not, served them.

    There was one horrible lot that was removed from the Nandi line - Korongoro, It is still in Kipsisgis line. These were losers in War and the Nandi being arrogant warriors decided to kill that spirit by expunging the sobs to oblivion and remained with only 7 age-sets instead of 8. Good riddance. There too many baddies anyhow and Kaplelach is our best hope for now and 2022 for this nation to really find solid footing for all time.
