The Government will soon de-gazette part of Mt Elgon forest to expand the controversial Chebyuk settlement in Mt Elgon District.

Western PC Abdul Mwasserah said the move was part of the reconstruction initiated by the Government after security personnel restored peace.

He said various authorities, at the national level, were handling the matter to ensure land allocation controversies do not recur during the scheme’s phase three re-allocations.
