Just a day after getting back from his North Rift region following a series of development tours, Deputy President William Ruto has taken his development projects to Emurua Dikirr constituency in Narok County.
On Friday, Dr. William Ruto visited Ololmasani area in Narak South where he was received by the host Emurua Dikirr MP, Johana Ngeno and Narok governor, Samuel Ole Tunai.

Ruto’s visit to the region came at a time when the debate on the second phase of Mau Forest evictions is making headlines.
A section of the Rift Valley leaders led by Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen and former Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto have already declared that they will not support forceful evictions and have urged the government to compensate all the affected families before moving them out.
Despite this, Ruto has remained quiet over the matter probably not wanting to involve himself in a sensitive matter that made the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga lost his popularity in Rift Valley when he led the first phase of evictions.
