Mau evictions should be done humanely

At a time that climate change is a global concern, we should use every weapon within our reach to save our water towers. And this includes plucking illegal settlers out of Mau Forest land. But as we have pointed out for the umpteenth time, this should be done in a humane manner. Majority of these people are not criminals, they are victims of complex fraud; they were sold land and even handed title deeds. They need help to keep going even as the State launches investigations to ensure they get justice. The Government also needs to fulfill its promise and ensure that students from Mau schools who are supposed to write KCPE and KCSE examinations do so with minimal, if any, inconveniences.
