Nandi governor Stephen Sang has asked the National government through the Ministry of Special Programs to consider resettling residents who were evicted many decades ago from their land on grounds that they had invaded public land.
Sang cited that the evictees from Serengonik and Kipkurere in Tindiret region Nandi County were evicted by the government many years ago and up to date have not been resettled nor compensated despite the government’s promise to find them an alternative land, therefore should act immediately and fulfill its promise.
He decried the state of the evictees who have remained squatters for many years saying they have suffered a lot and many of them have died due to cold weather and the pathetic state of the environment they live in.
Sang was speaking after hosting one of the best KCPE candidates in Nandi who scored 430 marks and became among the best Ten Nationally who is the son of the evictee and despite all odds he did his best.
Nandi is proud of two KCPE candidates who performed well in the 2020 KCPE by putting Nandi on educational map.
Lourine Cheruto Tarus from St Mathews Kebulonik emerged sixth nationally with 431 marks, Nandi is proud of her and her counterpart from Lessos Hills Adventist Abiud Kipkurui.
Majority of schools in Nandi did well in last year’s KCPE and the entire county is celebrating this achievement lauding the efforts by parents, teachers, pupils and the entire education stake holders in ensuring good results.
