Nandi Hills Sub-County Administrator Speaks


The Nandi people met to discuss how the community has been mistreated, abused and silenced for more than 10 decades whereby the great resources were, and is still bring grabbed until this century of independence. Sons, daughters and siblings of the late great grand parents are not happy  living in the unyielding hills with nothing but labour and hand-to-mouth living conditions. In the meeting, the representatives of Nandi Council of Elders expressed without fear the need to compensate the community that has remained benevolently silent and thus taken for advantage.

Leaders supported the movement to compensation, urging sober approach upon the initiative that is supported by the Constitution of Kenya on articles 40(6), 66(2) and 67 COK.
