IDPs in Nakuru sue government

08 February 2012, 15:07 Steve Wambugu

The IDPs  in Nakuru have moved to court to sue the government of Kenya for failing to fulfill their pledge they made to them, of resettling them.

They want the State compelled to pay for thousands of acres of land that the victims of 2007/08 post election violence had identified to be purchased on their behalf.
Peter Kinyanjui, Livingstone Sowe, Peter Tena, Wilfred Manyara, Margaret James and Charles Mwangi moved to High Court on behalf of Kenya National Organisation of  Victims of Ethnic Clashes which purport to represent more than 80,000 people across the country.

They are suing office of the Attorney General, The State, PS Ministry of Lands and that of Special Programs and that of Finance for failing to implement government proposal to give their members alternative livelihood.

Their decision to seek legal redress was allegedly motivated by recent announcement by Ministry of Special Programnmes PS Andrew Mondoh that requested IDPs to identify suitable pieces of land for their resettlement.

The suit which applicants want certified urgent was received by State Law Office on February 2 2012.

According to the applicants, they were acting on directives issued by the PS had during his last month meeting in Nakuru where he asked IDPs to identify properties that did not exceed Sh 450,000 which they would be assisted in buying through government procurement process.

The lobby group, claims in their affidavit that they had identified several properties which government was yet to honour pledge such as that of Matigari Kianugu Investment measuring approximately 500 acres, some 1,776 acres at Ciasmara/Ewaso Ngiro and Ciasmara Lemek among others that they want government to procure to resettle more than 300,000 people.

The IDPs' suit for resettlement comes at a time when they doubted government commitment to address their plight.
