IDPs: President did not keep peace pledge

Internally Displaced People (IDPs) camping in Naivasha have accused President Kibaki of failing to keep his promise.

They lashed at the Head of State and dismissed the peace accord as a pact between the rich.

The victims, who hail from Eldoret, Nakuru, Njoro and parts of the Kericho, vowed never return to their farms despite the signing of the power-sharing deal.

Those who hail from Narok said the President, back in 1993, had promised they would never suffer again.

“When Kibaki visited us in Maella camp after we were evicted from Narok, he promised us peace,” said Isaac Macharia. Ms Jane Wambui, 58, accused senior politicians of dining and wining as the IDPs continued to suffer.

The IDPs challenged MPs to forfeit half of their salaries to aid them.
