following to the Kenya Government:
undertakings that the Ogieks will no longer be harassed and that
their right to the ancestral land will be respected.
the Ogiek Land Act that will give the Ogieks the right to inhabit
the forests in the Central Rift Valley and traditionally conserve
them on behalf of their children and in line with the Forest Act
Mau Forest be degazetted as a forest and set aside as a habitation
zone of the Ogiek. The said forest should be preserved under the
Ogiek Land Act. The government should thus stop the enforced assimilation
of the Ogiek.
those behind the destruction of Mau Forest and take positive measures
that will allow the Ogiek contribute to a multicultural nation.
total boycott of timber harvested at the Mau Forest until such a
time that the Ogieks right to livelihood is restored and respected.
