Give IDPs land as the money is not sufficient

By: DAVID WARUHARI

I thank the government for paying the second tranche of the money meant for the IDPs. The question that lingers on my mind is: What can Sh200,000 do? In this age, it is difficult to find a plot of land that goes for less than Sh500,000.

It is commendable that the government has tried to resettle the IDP’s, but I think there is a need for a different strategy before the money is given out to the internally displaced. The government could instead offer these people a piece of land.
