Kindiki Orders Kenyans Living in or Near Govt Forests to Vacate Immediately

Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki has ordered all Kenyans living in government forest land to vacate immediately.

Speaking during the national tree planting exercise in Marsabit County on May 10, 2023, Kindiki noted that many forest covers had been encroached on by Kenyans building homes and undertaking other business activities.

He indicated that the government would begin to reclaim all forest land as they aim to protect the environment.

“There are some people who have encroached on our forests. I want to make it very clear that all those who have encroached on all forest land must leave immediately.

“We are going to reclaim our forest reserves as we increase our forests. Therefore any person who is living in the government forest must start leaving,” he directed.

He noted that some people had even attained title deeds, adding that the government had information that the documents were acquired irregularly.

“We are told that some of them managed to get illegal title deeds and we shall not respect a title deed issued against the law. They must vacate whether they have title deeds or not,” he stated.
