- On Wednesday, Ledama said the land belonged to Narok County, adding that there will be consequences in the event the county boundaries are interfered with.
- His remarks came hot on heels as Bomet County Government is seeking to have two of the forest blocks transferred.
Narok Senator Ledama Olekina has warned against the transfer of two Mau Forest blocks to Bomet County.
On Wednesday, Ledama said the land belonged to Narok County, adding that there will be consequences in the event the county boundaries are interfered with.
"This is our land and territory…I dare you to transfer its management to Bomet Ndio Mtajua hamjui," he said.
His remarks came hot on the heels of reports claiming that the Bomet County Government is seeking to have two of the forest blocks transferred.
Governor Hillary Barchok is reportedly seeking to have the Kenya Forest Service (KFS) transfer the blocks for what he terms easy management.
Nyangores and Nairotia block border Bomet but are managed under the Narok ecosystem.
"The management of the two forest blocks should fall under the Bomet ecosystem as it is abnormal to have a resource that is in one county to be managed under a neighbouring county," Barchok said.
Senator Ledama also called upon Maasai leaders and environmentalists to protect the Mau Forest, against "people daydreaming about it".
"I call upon all Maasai Leaders and environmentalists in Kenya to raise their voices on the Mau Forest issue …we cannot allow anyone to change the boundaries of Narok County," he said.
Ledama further urged Governor Ole Ntutu to speak up about the transfer, saying it was not a political party issue.
