We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

Kajiado governor, Joseph Lenku, said on Tuesday that total reclamation of the Mau complex will form a critical part of Jubilee’s legacy.


Lenku said in a signed statement that all Kenyans must support President Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto to fully restore the water tower in the ongoing removal of illegal settlers.

“The Mau settlement was an act of greed and impunity by some people. Human settlements were not done illegally. We don’t see this kind of forest destruction in other forested areas in the country. There should be nothing special about Mau,” Governor Lenku said.

The Governor said President Kenyatta will safeguard Jubilee’s resolve to conclusively settle the matter unlike the former regimes that made the attempt and failed.

“Jubilee government must not join the list of regimes that were blackmailed and failed to solve the environmental degradation that is affecting the region,” said Lenku.

He said a section of Rift Valley leaders had politicised the matter for their self-interests but said the overall good in conserving the Mau overrides any other consideration.

“It is not just a Narok County Matter. This is a national and international issue and it has a direct bearing on availability of water in several counties and livelihoods for thousands of Kenyans. We must not allow partisan politics to take precedence,” said the Governor.

He said he was in full support of the agitation by Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina and Narok North MP Moitalel Ole Kenta to have the evictions go on.

The Governor lauded the head of the Anglican Church Jackson Ole Sapit for asking Rift Valley politicians to stop the rhetoric and instead support the conservation of the Mau.

Lenku’s position is in tandem with the position of Environment Cabinet Secretary Keriako Tobiko, who has come under fire from a section of Rift Valley MPs for his zeal to flush out settlers.

The leaders accused Tobiko of advancing an extraneous agenda in the evictions.
