After the meeting former Bomet Governor Isaac Rutto and Kipchumba Murkomen read the deliberations on behalf of other leaders.
Ruto said the said area that covers three wards in Narok South was allocated to the current settlers in 1970s.
” If it is an illegal settlement why do we have elected MCAs and Chiefs serving the government in the area. So we ask the international community to bear with us as we iron out the issue” the CCM boss said
They said will next week Tuesday Meet Keriako Tobiko to discuss the issue.
Former Bomet Governor Isaac asked the international community to bear with the situation saying the impeding eviction will cause imminent humanitarian crisis.
