Keriako Tobiko Promises to Name Land Grabbers Within Two Weeks

Keriako Tobiko

Land grabbing has been a menace in the country with casualties reported in the recent past. Environment Cabinet Secretary Keriako Tobiko has now promised to name and shame those who grabbed Kiambu forest where conservationist Joannah Stutchbury was murdered.

Appearing before Senate’s Security Committee, Mr Tobiko said he had received a report from Kenya Forest Service (KFS) with names of individuals alleged to be in the syndicate but has asked for more documentation.

“I don’t want to peddle names at the moment until I get all the documentation. I’m working with KFS to get the full dossier, which I will table before the committee. I can assure this committee that the greedy individuals who grabbed land in Kiambu forest will return them,” he said.

Mr Tobiko noted that Ms Stutchbury was simply doing her work of protecting the environment and her selflessness did not warranty her murder. He added that his ministry has been in touch with the family of the deceased and they are constantly updating them on the progress of the investigation into her killing.
