Parade protest


"Mia Tatu Ndio Tunapewa Kama Compensation," Four Families Rendered Homeless After Demolition.

It said that Home is where the heart is, it is also where love resides, memories are created, friends always belong, and laughter never ends. Today Mbeere South Member of Parliament Geoffrey Kingangi and nine other journalists have been released after being arrested for protesting the ongoing demolitions at Mumoni area Kitui county.

Four hundred families have been rendered homeless after the expiry of a one year notice of eviction issued to them by the Tana Athi River Development Authority (TARDA). The families living next to Kiambere Dam, are said to have occupied land belonging to the authority.

The residents were seen carrying whatever useful items they could to start over. Others watched helplessly as their homes were flattened. The inhabitants acknowledged the notice and urged the government to provide an alternative. One of them said that TARDA's compensation was an insult because they were given a paltry Kshs 300. Schools and churches have not been spared either. Stakeholders in the education sectors have been left scratching their heads because schools are set to open in less than 3 weeks.
