They said that there should be orderly reclamation of land, to pave way for compensation and that the law on compulsory acquisition should be implemented.
The MPs said they had met with President Kibaki and Raila and separately agreed that there would be orderly reclamation.
Keter said it was ironical for the Government to issue a blanket notice to settlers without specifying which category of people would be affected. Keter added: "It is ridiculous that KFS have issued the notice when demarcation of the forest and private land has not been done."
The Belgut MP said there was need for statistics of people in the complex to be sought before a blind quit notice was given â something he argued would have far reaching effects.
Terms of payment
"We are all in agreement that the Mau complex be conserved but alternative land for the families settled in it should be identified and terms of compensation agreed upon," Keter said, in a statement.
Ruto, the Chepalungu MP, said the notice shows myriad contradictions. He argued KFS had overstepped its mandate by ordering people out of their farms.
"We are rallying the people to ignore the directive until there is a clear and agreed upon method," he said.
He said that the move negated what Raila has always said about compensation.
Dr Kones asked the families to ignore the quit notice while Cheruiyot asked: "What happens to the registered public schools, students and teachers in the complex, what of the KCSE and KCPE candidates?"
"The best the Government could do is to compensate the families to allow them resettle elsewhere instead of creating a humanitarian crisis," Magerer said. Ainamoi MP Benjamin Langat said the Government should handle the eviction with utmost care.
