Fresh tension stalls IDPs move to farm

Grumbling by newly-elected leaders has compelled the government to suspend the resettlement of 900 landless people at a farm on the Nakuru/Narok counties boundary. The provincial administration on Monday said it had stopped allocating the more than 2,400-acre Rose Farm to internally displaced persons and Mau Forest evictees until the local leadership was consulted. Rift Valley provincial commissioner Osman Warfa confirmed he had asked the Special Programmes ministry to suspend the resettlement until a political truce was reached as fresh tension had emerged over the property acquired by the government in 2010.
