Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale has found himself in the receiving end from Kenyans on Tweeter after he called on the government to evict former President Daniel Arap Moi, from 2,333 acres Kiptagich Tea Estate at Ilpontol.
According to the close ally of Deputy President William Ruto, the Moi’s vast Tea estate which is in the South of Mau was unjustifiably acquired.
Taking into his Tweeter account on Wednesday, Khalwale stated that the government can only speak of evicting the the 50,000 residents of the Mau forest after successfully managing to evict the country’s second President from his residence.
“The government MUST evict President Daniel Moi from the 2,333 acre Kiptagich Tea Estate at Ilpontol that he unjustifiably owns in the Mau. Thereafter Kenyans will support the eviction of the 50,000 squatters sitting on 10,000 acres in the Mau. Hustlers are also people! ” he wrote.

Khalwale’s statement is coming at a time that the government is preparing for the second phase of Mau evictions targeting individuals who are illegally occupying part of the Mau Forest.
However, according to Kenyans who read malice in Khalwale’s tweet, the former Senator’s statement expressed conflict of interest in the controversial Mau eviction saga.
Some went further to suggest that Khalwale was speaking on behalf of his ally Dr.Ruto see no eye with the Moi family. Ruto has also remained mum on the eviction targetting his backyard.
Here are some of the reactions;
” Thereafter Kenyans will support……” You speaking on behalf of Kenyans now? Personally I want Mau saved regardless of the order of evictions. Only that evictions must be carried out in a humane manner.
