Nandi Governor Stephen Sang has called upon the National government through the leadership of the President of the Republic of Kenya His Excellency William Ruto to assist Koitalel Samoei family and Kalenjins at last to get justice from the British government.
Addressing the public at Mashujaa Day celebrations in Kilibwoni Ward Nandi County, Sang cited that the family is still suffering to date as their animals; property and land were taken away by the British during the colonial era.
Many of the people were killed alongside with the Orkoiyot Koitalel Samoei and their livestock stolen thus are still living in poverty to date and there is need for the government to expedite the compensation process.
The Governor appealed to the National government through its expertise to ensure justice is served for these victims as soon as possible.
He lauded the National Land Commission (NLC) decision of actualization in ensuring squatters are settled thus requested all the Institutions mandated to conclude the appealed cases in Courts.
“Am hopeful that the Appellate Courts will provide a tangible and lasting solution to all victims of historical land injustices.” He affirmed.
On the other hand the County Commissioner for Nandi Harman Shambi reiterated the Governors’ sentiments saying indeed all the legends or Mashujaas need to be feted and honored for their tireless struggle thus both governments need to discuss this important issue.
Shambi also urged the public to give room for the new government to do its work saying that politics should be set aside for now and allow the government to work for the development and prosperity of our Nation.
The Mashujaa day celebrations were also conducted at the Sub-County level, the theme of this years’ Mashujaa Day celebrations was dubbed “Nchi yangu, Jukumu langu”.
