Embu leaders ask Waiguru to keep off Mwea scheme land

CENTRAL

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru told to keep off Mwea settlement scheme 

Senator Njeru Ndwiga has dismissed claims by Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru that the Mwea settlement scheme lies in the latter's county.

Speaking during a thanksgiving ceremony for Embu Speaker Josiah Thiriku at ACK Njarange church on Sunday, the senator said history clearly confirms that the contested land lies in Embu County.

He cautioned leaders against making inflammatory remarks on the matter. Mr Ndwiga explained that before independence, Kirinyaga was part of the larger Embu District, adding that the two were later separated to become distinct administrative regions.

He said the South Ngariama scheme ended up in Kirinyaga County, while the Mwea scheme remained in Embu County. Ndwiga said the dispute could be solved through dialogue.
