The county administration explained that they resolved to pursue the matter after Parliament and the Truth Justice and Reconciliation Commission failed to conclusively address it to deliver justice. “TJRC failed to adequately address the issue of Nandi historical injustices; the National Assembly has also been slow in finding permanent solutions to the question of historical injustices thus pushing affected counties to take alternative independent initiatives,” said the governor. The Nandi community accused the British government of alleged forceful eviction from fertile lands to pave way for the establishment of the large scale tea plantations. The Nandi community is laying claim to the greater Nandi Hills, presently occupied by various Tea Estate Companies, Chemelil, Muhoroni, Miwani, Kimwani area, Makindu, Kibigori, Kibos, Oduo, Mamboleo, the Fort Tenan, Soba River, Soghor and Tibingot area that forms parts of the land formally occupied by the East Africa Tanning and Extract Company.
