Ministry pledges Christmas gifts for over 2,000 IDPs still in camps

The government will give Christmas tokens to all internally displaced persons and Mau evictees as a consolation for failing to meet the December 31 resettlement deadline. The homeless families are set to spend their fifth Christmas in filthy camps after efforts to give them homes before the end of the year were hampered by unavailability of land. Special Programmes Permanent Secretary Andrew Mondoh at the weekend appealed to the 2,000 victims on their waiting list to remain patient.
