Kenya: Nakuru Aspirant Speaks Out On IDP Resettlement

The Kenya National Congress Senatorial Aspirant for Nakuru County, Stanely Karanja Chege has called upon government to work on their promise to resettle the internally displaced persons ahead of the general election.

Speaking yesterday while touring the Vumilia IDP camp in Maai-Mahiu, the Aspirant said it was unfair that the IDP issue has been politicized but little has been done towards resettling them.

"It is unfair that we still have people living in camps. The Government promised to resettle each and every Displaced person before the elections but little is being done to beat that deadline." Said Stanley.

He urged government to increase the portions of land given to IDP'S saying the half acre land given was too small for them to indulge in farming so as to sustain their daily needs.

"The land given is too small. They should get bigger portions of land so that they can plant food crops to sustain them and their families. Stanley called for Civic education in the camps saying IDPS had been neglected.
