Kenya: Govt Suspends Mwea Resettlement in Kirinyaga and Embu Counties

Nairobi — The Government has suspended the Mwea resettlement exercise in Kirinyaga and Embu counties.

The suspension followed consultations between Interior and Lands Cabinet Secretaries Fred Matiangi and Farida Karoney.

Interior Ministry Spokesperson Mwenda Njoka announced it via twitter saying it was immediate.
