Isiolo leaders condemn Meru Governor in a new border row

Isiolo leaders led by Isiolo North M.P Hon. Hassan Odha and other leaders released a presser this afternoon following the visit by Meru Governor to Ngaremara ward. Governor Kiraitu paid a visit to Ngaremara ward which is in Isiolo County and launched a number of projects a move that angered the Isiolo community who termed it as a gross violation of the boundaries.

“No one should be above the law and the move by H.E Kiraitu Murungi is an open disregard and violation of the law which will not be taken lightly,” said the ligislator. The leaders urged the residents to be patient as they pursue the correct channel to end the border disputes once and for all.

The location of the piece of land was contested in a court of law Judge Lenaola ruled in favour of Isiolo County. Isiolo North M.P has warned the Meru Governor against fueling inter-border disputes which has in the last few months raised tensions between the two counties.

The elders present have also raised eyebrows on blatant disregard of borders by their neighbour who according to them have encroached on their land. The elders have urged the leaders to end the border disputes by pushing for fresh demarcation. They also demanded removal of Meru County billboards erected on Isiolo land.
