S Rift leaders reject evictions

A section of leaders from South Rift have reacted angrily to reports the Government is about to evict squatters from the Mau Forest.
Cabinet Minister Franklin Bett and Ainamoi MP Benjamin Langat said they were shocked to learn from Press reports that the Mau Forest Interim Secretariat was planning to remove squatters from the complex in a week’s time. The leaders said the move was contrary to the report of the task force formed to look into the thorny issue of Mau.
