Nyamoko noted that Sudi was adversely mentioned by the squatters over the alleged grabbing of the land in question and his appearance before the committee will be key in unravelling the truth.

The land in question is also claimed by Moi University that has been farming on the land.

The North Mugirango MP revealed that Moi University had been instructed to halt any farming activities on the disputed piece of land until the matter is resolved.

The committee also instructed the Moi University Vice Chancellor Prof. Isaac Kosgey to stop any farming activities in the land until the issue is resolved.

During the fact-finding mission, the committee met stakeholders, including squatters and Moi university management.

The squatters sought the intervention of the National Assembly after unknown persons who they claimed were trespassers invaded the disputed land.

The squatters who also lay claim to the land noted that the trespassers begun tilling the 1500 acres in 2024 in readiness for planting.
