Konchellah: Govt has spent 3.3 billion to resettle IDPs

23 October 2013, 13:39 Wilshere

Nakuru - Devolution Principal Secretary, John Konchellah, has said the government has spent a total of KES 3.3 billion to resettle Mau forest evictees and victims of 2007 skirmishes.

Speaking on Tuesday afternoon in Rongai Nakuru where he issued cheques to 249 IDPs families at Alko camp, Konchellah said that the government is committed to ensuring that all profiled IDPs are resettled as soon as possible.

“The government has been able to spend some substantial amount of money to resettle Mau forest evictees,” he said.

In Nakuru County alone, Konchellah said, that the government has spent KES 876 million to resettle Mau forest evictees and KES 236 million to resettle victims of 2007 post poll skirmishes.

The PS called on those who benefit from the government compensation to use the money wisely in order to uplift their livelihoods.

“You should use this money well because the government remains committed to resettling all displaced people in the country,” he said.
