Members of the Muslim community in Mai Mahiu, Naivasha have protested the move by the provincial administration to ban Madrassa. Cleric Ali Jiba said the government has banned a Tanzanian colleague from conducting the religious studies in the area.
"...this is oppression and we shall go to the streets to protest this," he said. But speaking on phone, Naivasha subcounty commissioner Mohammed Abass said they have not banned madrassa.
He said the Tanzanian cleric does not have a work permit and his teachings are controversial. At the same time, the Naivasha district security and intelligence committee has outlawed any meetings on the controversial Narasha land.
This follows a second attempt by a group of Maasai leaders from Nakuru county to tour the area and donate food to the families affected by the eviction.
