Residents of Got Nyango village in Karachuonyo subcounty, Homa Bay county on Monday held a peaceful demonstration over iron ore mining in the area.
They invaded God Nyango hill where the mining is being carried, forcing employees of Sky light company to run away.
The residents said the company has not honoured the agreement they made before.
Leo Ooro, chairman of a committee formed to represent the residents said the company has ignored the MOU they made with the community.
In the agreement, Sky Light was to construct a school and a church. The facilities were brought down to give way for the mining exercise.
The company had also agreed to construct a factory to create job opportunities for the residents.
"We were surprised that the factory which we agreed was to be put up in this village has been moved to Ahero within Kisumu county," said Ooro.
