Environment and Forestry Cabinet Secretary Keriako Tobiko has said the files for those who grabbed and sold land in the Maasai Mau have been finalized and forwarded to the Director of Public Prosecution for prosecution.
The CS said grabbers, who he termed as the ‘original criminals‘ hived about 35,000 acres of land are liable for prosecution.
He cautioned leaders against politicizing the Mau evictions saying the government will not allow politicians to gain political mileage by allocating forest land to their cronies and defending them against evictions.
“Forests cannot be used to gain political mileage, the second phase of Mau evictions will be undertaken soon, it has been a hot potato and we shall not be intimidated. Tobiko said.
He said the Mau issue is thorn and complex , and if the issue is not solved now, with the 2022 elections politics simmering , the issue may never be solved.
The CS was speaking over the weekend , while fielding questions from journalist at Shankoe Secondary School, in Trasmara Sub-county, Narok County.
