Raila Odinga, a candidate for president of Kenya, was cautioned by Deputy President William Ruto not to "incite and hoodwink" the Maa electorate by invoking the topic of the eviction from the Mau Forest.
As party leaders travel the country in quest of votes, Ruto indicated that the government evictions in 2019 are no longer relevant political fodder.
Raila has been on record as claiming credit for the evictions in Mau, saying that his handshake with President Uhuru Kenyatta was what made it possible. This claim has been proven to be false.
It appears that the kitendwali man, Raila Odinga, is perplexed, and I would like to inform him of this. The Mau situation has been resolved, as far as the people of Narok are concerned. You, kitendawili man, should try to find another enterprise and make a vow. We have reached a resolution on the Narok and Mau issues," stated Ruto.
The presidential candidate for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) has stated that the only things that remain are the fencing of the Mau Forest and the resolution of the land disputes in Kedong and Rose Farm, both of which he believes will eventually be completed.
"Since we have reached a resolution to the Mau matter, the only two issues that remain are the Rose Farm and this one in Kedong Farm. This is done in order to facilitate the return of the land to its original owners, who will receive compensation from the government for the return of their property. According to what Ruto has declared, that land would be returned to the Maasai people.
“You kitendawili man please we are tired of your instigation. Try to find a different business and a different agenda," he suggested further.
