30 Jul

WAS IT JUST FOR THE MEDIA TO REPORT OR ACTION WILL BE TAKEN?

The Prime Minister Raila Odinga yesterday reveled the names of those who acquired some part of the Mau forest land that is causing tension among politicians and Kenyans as well .He was quoted by a section of the media saying that he would rather loose his career and save Kenya. The list which was tabled before parliament contained of 49 individuals and companies. Baringo Central MP Sammy Mwaita and the Catholic Church are among the biggest beneficiaries of land allocations in the Mau Forest, whose destruction has caused widespread public alarm as it poses a threat to water security in the country. Many other beneficiaries were influential people in the Moi administration while others were their relatives.
aguamboKenyans have never before debated on an environmental issue with so much fire and passion, like this one of Mau forest. We are all grateful to Raila for that bold move he made by making the Mau list public, but we are also not sure how and when any action will be taken having in mind that this may also be part of political dirty games to tarnish each others name.
We are hopeful that this is just the beginning of many other irregular allocation of public land to individuals’ deals to be revealed. The ball is on the governments’ side to take immediate action on all the culprits and save our beautiful land.
BEAUTIFUL KENYA

    Prime minister did a very commendable job. I think its time for our leaders not to be politisizing everything. My worry now is for the President to appoint his usual commision of inquiry because all the effort which Raila has done will be just but nothing.

    Im very tired of these lists of shame. They are as ridiculous as Ole Kaparo’s gown Why do Kenyans stick with strategies that don’t work even when been demonstrated as failed ? The only day that the corrupt will take notice is if there are economic consequences to their activities. If we repossess illegally acquired wealth and jail perpetrators then and only then will we start getting some reprieve from these bloodsuckers.
