According to sources close to Jubilee’s political Kitchen, President Uhuru has not been happy with Ngilu’s performance and the way she handled the Langata primary school matter. Sources also say that Ngilu is perceived as a person who is not adding any value to the Jubilee coalition considering the fact that she lacks a voice in the Ukambani politics. Word has it that Jubilee wants to replace her with a powerful Ukambani politician very soon .
President Uhuru Kenyatta has faulted the Lands ministry and the National Land Commission for failing to resolve the Lang’ata Road Primary School land dispute.
President Kenyatta said the two institutions would be held to account for the row that led to the tear-gassing of pupils on Monday.
He said the act was deplorable, adding that police should not have been involved in the first place.
He also questioned the role of the headteacher of the school, saying that the schoolchildren should not have been allowed to participate in the protests.
Five children were on Monday injured during demonstrations to save the school from an alleged land grabber, sparking an outcry from the public against the use of excessive force by police, especially on the pupils.
President Kenyatta was speaking during the launch of Kenya’s first foreign and diaspora policy at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) on Tuesday.
Lang’ata OCPD Elijah Mwangi, who was in charge of the operation, was suspended following the incident.
On Tuesday morning, Interior Cabinet Secretary Maj-Gen (Rtd) Joseph Nkaissery visited the school and consoled the pupils.
Nkaissery also ordered the developer of the disputed plot to remove the remaining part of the perimeter wall and clear the building materials within 24 hours.
