The Deputy President William Ruto during his latest campaigns in Narok County on the 28th of May, 2022 has brought up the land issues revolving around the Kedong ranch which has had a lot of controversies.
The Kenya Kwanza Alliance flag bearer told the Narok County residents that if elected as Kenya's 5th president he will ensure that all the 75,000 acres ranch taken by the local community is returned specifically the Kedong ranch and Rose farm.
"The issue that is remaining is the Rose farm and Kedong ranch. We need to finish it the way we solved the Mau land issue so that the locals can be given the land's ownership and the government will pay," said Ruto.
In the land question, Kedong ranch has been linked to some Kenyatta family members who are said to be among the 23 shareholders of the Kedong Company.
Garissa Town Member of Parliament Aden Duale while asking for more votes for DP Ruto from the residents added that the deputy president is the only presidential candidate with an interest of ending the land issue compared to his rival, the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance flag bearer Raila Odinga who have no realistic solution for the issue.
"The solution to the land question since independence will be solved by Kenya Kwanza Government under the leadership of William Samoei Ruto," added Duale.
The community rejected a 4,000 acres of the land offered to them in February 2020 with a claim that a group of individuals had entered a deal with the landlord without their consent.
