Narok Senator, Ledama Ole Kina, has found himself in trouble with Kenyans after he pleaded with President Uhuru Kenyatta to appoint a Maasai to the National Lands Commission (NLC).

According to the vocal legislator, the Maasai Community has lost a lot of land and having a commissioner in NLC is the only way to safeguard the remaining portion.

Taking to his Twitter handle, Ole Kina suggested the nomination of NTSA Director Francis Ole Meja who among the shortlisted candidates.

“Dear President Uhuru kindly reconsider your appointments for the land commission to include a Maasai. As a community, we have lost a lot of lands and with a Maasai in the commission, we can help the community save some. Kindly consider Ole Meja who was shortlisted. Kindly,” read Ole Kina’s twitter post.

But his request has not been received well by Kenyans. Some people believe Ole Kina is propelling tribalism.
