Sunday September 1, 2019-A section of leaders from Rift Valley have faulted President Uhuru Kenyatta over the ongoing Mau Forest eviction.

Addressing Journalists in Nairobi on Sunday, Kericho Senator, Aaron Cheruiyot and Belgut MP Nelson Koech insisted that the residents who are being evicted from the water complex are holding genuine titles and accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of reneging on his promise that no one will be evicted from the water tower.

“This exercise is illegal, we will not allow the evictions to go on because it is discriminatory to the people,”Cheruiyot said.

They also said they will resist any attempt to evict locals, while terming an order by Environment Cabinet Secretary Keriako Tobiko as illegal.

President Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto have not commented on the matter that is turning out to be the hottest political debate exposing even further the perceived rift between the two top leaders and their supporters in the ruling Jubilee Party.

If the evictions go on as planned from Monday, more than 10,000 school-going children will be affected.
