Mau evictees claim to have been negelcted by the govt

02 December 2013, 22:38 Robert Kibet

Kuresoi - Twelve families who are among the Mau forest evictees camping at Kapwila farm of Kuresoi have called on the government to respond to their plight.

The families say they have been seeking help from the government for the past three years, but it has been in vain.

In an interview with the camp chairperson Bernard Rono, the families claim to have been forgotten by the government even when it was going round closing camps of families evicted from the government forests and those that were affected by the 2007/2008 post election violence.

“We have suffered a lot and despite our efforts to seek for help from various government departments, nothing much has been achieved. Hence we see this as a total neglect from the government side,” said Rono.

At the same time, the families claim that the tents that were supplied to them years back are torn, with young children having to persevere the extreme weather as the area is prone to heavy rains.

Among the basic needs they require include food, medication and good shelter as they wait for the government’s response to their cries for relocation to alternative land.

They now want the are DC to reasons to their cries in a bid to ensure they do enjoy the festive season just like other families across the country.
