MP Alleges What Ruto Might do to Mau Forest if he Becomes The President

ODM party leader Raila Odinga today met Maasai leaders as the 2022 election edges closer.

The Kajiado meeting realised attendance from Governor Joseph Ole Lenku (Kajiado), Narok Senator Ledama ole Kina, Environment Cabinet secretary Keriako Tobiko and others.

The meeting has dealt Deputy President William Ruto a brutal blow as his ally Francis Ole Kaparo ditched him to drum support for the ODM party leader ahead of the 2022 election.

The Former House Speaker, who once served as a chairman of the National Cohesion and Integration Commission, disclosed his support for Mr Odinga during Raila's Azimio la Umoja consultative campaigns.

Kaparo conveyed that Raila is a consummate politician who respects and understands the interests of the Maasai people.

Kaparo statement was echoed by MP Moitalel who said that the former Prime Minister isn't an enemy of the Maasai people and that he'll make sure Mau Forest isn't interfered with.

The lawmaker proclaimed that Mr Odinga should be confident with getting the Maasai votes because Maasai leaders supporting him translates to mean 70% of Maasai votes for Raila.

The leader mentioned that through Raila, Uhuru and Ole Lenku, the Maasai people were able to get their Mau forest back from leaders who intended to snatch it away.

"Mtakubali tena hio msitu iende? Mjue tukizungumza saizi kuna watu wanaviringa huko wanangoja kura zipigwe waingie kwa msitu yetu kwa sababu wanafikiria watachukua uongozi. Mujue mukitupa kura huko mnatuumiza sisi na vizazi zijazo." Moitalel said.

He went on to say that while on a meeting in Njoro Narok, rumours reached them that leaders from a particular political wing wanted Maasai people to stop using the Mau forest until they, the political wing, take leadership come 2022.
