Residents of Suswa in Narok county have appealed to President Uhuru Kenyatta to intervene and solve the land issue which surrounds the controversial 90,000 hectare Kedong ranch.
Led by a Maasai elder, Paul ole Shukuru, they wondered why a power plant want to evict them without clear reasons yet the land belong to the Maasai community.
Speaking to the press in Narok town yesterday, Shukuru said they had filed a case in court and had issued injunctions for all the works in the land to be stopped until the case is determined.
“If the government want to use the land, they should come and talk to us rather than engaging few individuals whose interests is for their own gains,” said Shukuru.
He added that it is sad that the Ken Gen Company which operates in the area have employed less than 25 youths from the community out of the 300 workers who were recently recruited.
