Kenyans Tell Off Senator Ledama After he Reveals What he Will Introduce When he Becomes President

Kenyans have elicited mixed reactions after Narok county senator Ledama Ole Kina revealed the kind of tough measures that he will introduce when he becomes president.

According to him, one of the tough measures that he will introduce is to have no Kenyan owning more than 1000 acres of land with an aim of ensuring that land is equally shared among the Kenyans.

Another tough measure is that all private ranches in Laikipia county will be reverted back to their alleged original owners who he says are the Maasai people.

He has termed their take by the white as neocolonialism that he will not allow as the Head of State and government in the country then.

"When I become President of Kenya call it whatever economic model you want to call it! Middle , Sideways, bottom up or trickle down! No single person will own more than 1000 acres of land. All ranches in Laikipia will revert back to the original owners! Neocolonialism will end!"Senator Ledama Ole Kina.

His sentiments seem to have been directed by the tough order issued by the Cabinet Secretary in charge of the Ministry of Interior CS Fred Matiang'i who ordered Maasai invaders in Laikipia to leave the area.

However, Kenyans feel that Ledama Ole Kina is just speaking from the mind of a politician and not a rational thinker and hence his are just empty talks that Kenyans cannot trust whatsoever.

"Wah, that would be extreme. Mugabe tried it in Zimbabwe by forceful acquisition of white lands, but ended up ruining the coutry for decades than solving land ownership issues. You must avoid that path"Calvin noted.

"That's a bunch of nonsense. You've been warned to push for education ... Take maasai mara revenue and go for a bond and raise $1 billion... Use the fees to pay interest rates and upgrade maasai land. Also buy the ranches Prosper"
