Nandi Governor Stephen Sang has asked the National Government to make public the Truth Justice and Reconciliation Commission(TJRC) report.
Governor Sang spoke in Chepkober, Chesumei Sub County, during the commemoration of the hundredth anniversary, since members of the Talai clan were forcefully evicted from their Nandi Hills ancestral land and deported to Kapsisiywo by the colonial administration.
He said the TJRC report will address historical injustices.
Sang however, expressed his disappointment with the current actions of the government in relation to the report which he said has been kept to rot in dust.
“The TJRC report is lying and gathering dust in the National Assembly. It is important that the report is made public, part of the challenges we are purporting to deal with using the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) have been captured in the TJRC report,”said Sang.
The governor at the same time asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to operationalize the Sh10 billion fund for historical injustices.
“From 2016 up to now nothing has happened towards operationalization of the fund. We are asking the Jubilee administration, since this was your brainchild, let us operationalize it so that the elders and victims who are ageing can benefit from this fund ahead of their sunset years,”said Sang.
Governor Sang also asked that once the fund is operational, the National Government should work closely with County Governments in identifying the bona fide beneficiaries.
The special centenary prayers for the Talai clan was also attended by Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago, Nandi Deputy Governor Dr Yulita Cheruiyot, Chesumei MP Wilson Kogo, Former Chesumei MP Elijah Lagat, Former Eldoret South MP Jesse Mais and MCAs from Nandi county.
