Land grab

Plots in the 3,000 acre Moi Ndabi settlement scheme in Naivasha were laid out by the government in 1994 for victims of ethnic clashes. They went instead to politicians, civil servants, army officers and others favoured by the then government of President Daniel arap Moi. This was recently revealed by the Daily Nation, which unearthed documents from the Ministry of Lands. The beneficiaries include two ministers in the current coalition.

Livestock Minister Mohammed Abdi Kuti (Party of National Unity) is said to have received 18 acres.
