  |   Kenya News

Security has been beefed up at the disputed land within Maasai Mau forest following information that some residents are planning to resist the looming evictions.

This comes after the government announced that some 2,200 families targeted for eviction from the 17,101 acres disputed forest land had moved out voluntarily.

The State had issued them with a 60-day notice to vacate the forest land or face forceful eviction. 30 days have elapsed since the ultimatum was issued by Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya.

Acting Narok County Commissioner Mutuku Mwenga said security officers are on standby in case security threats emerge.

"We have received intelligence information that some people were planning to resist the evictions. None should be cheated by anyone that they can resist eviction. I'm happy that already people are moving out at their own free will," Mr Mwenga told Journalists.
