IDPs case against Govt to be withdrawn

29 August 2012, 13:43 Steve Wambugu

The Kenya National Organization for Victims of Ethnic Clashes (KNOVEC) is considering withdrawing  a case  filed to compel the government to resettle all IDPs and squatters.

Addressing journalists in Nakuru, the organization's officials led by national organizing secretary peter Tena said that the government has made considerable progress in the resettlement of idps  since the case was filed thus their intention to with draw the same .

Tena said that KNOVEC was happy with the resettlement process which he said had seen a considerable 65% of idps resettled .

He said KNOVEC which represents close to 70,000 IDPS affected during the 1992,1997 and 2007 skirmishes had watertight evidence of how Kshs 500 million meant for IDPs resettlement was swindled by people who have since remained free while IDPs continue to suffer in camps.

Tena said it will be difficult for the next government to address the plight of IDPs adding that their problems could be better solved before the coalition government is dissolved.

The organization through a judicial review has sued the government over its failure to resettle victims of ethnic clashes.

The case is still pending at the Nakuru high court.
