Wednesday September 4, 2019 - Deputy President William Ruto finally broke his silence over the ongoing evictions in Mau Forest.
Speaking at Moi Girls High School, Kibra in Nairobi on Tuesday, Ruto asked Mau residents to be calm and assured them that the education sector would not be affected.
"Every child is entitled to be in school, na sio tafadhali (it is mandatory).”
“Even those in Mau will not be left behind," Ruto stated.
The DP's comments came at a day after Nakuru County Commissioner, Erastus Mbui, ordered 15 schools that had been closed down to reopen for Third Term and allow candidates to prepare for the national exam.
Ruto had earlier on been quiet over the matter and left it to his allies such as Kapsaret Member of Parliament, Oscar Sudi, and Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, who blasted the Government of President Uhuru Kenyatta over the evictions.
