IDPs urge govt to expedite resettlement process
16 September 2013, 13:01
Nakuru - More than 200 IDP families living in Ndonga farm, Subukia, have called on the government to hasten the resettlement program so they can resume with their normal lives.
Addressing the media in Nakuru on Monday morning, the IDPs chairman, Joseph Kuria, said that since they were transported to the farm from Pipeline camp two years ago, they are yet to be resettled owing to wrangles between family members who sold the farm to the government.
Kuria said that the government should move in and reconcile the wrangling family members so that sub-division of the farm can start.
He said that the IDPs were living in deplorable conditions especially during the rainy season.
The chairman added that before the close of the IDPs resettlement exercise, the government should ensure that the more than 1 000 acre-farm is subdivided and each family allocated a share.
He said that by virtue of the farm being located in an agricultural rich area, they can be able to engage in farming activities instead of relying on the government for relief supplies. Join in the conversation on our Facebook page. Also get the latest news by following us on Twitter.
