MINUTES OF THE CCP MEETING HELD AT OXFAM OFFICES, SHELTER AFRIQUE HOUSE ON 09/05/08

CORE GROUP MEMBERS PRESENT


1. Amb. Bethuel Kiplagat


Matters Arising

Internally Displaced Camps

There is a concern that top political leaders are quiet about asking others to vacate and return property that does not belong to them. The Muslim Sheikh from Mombasa made a prayer that can be encouraged countrywide.

The full data of IDPs to be resettled will be provided by KVP in the next meeting. Nairobi Peace Forum can aid in this process.

It was observed that the identification of true IDPs is still a challenge.

Some IDPs have trained in different trades and hence, require start-up capital to finance their small ventures.

1. Mathare

–   Mwangi Kihara, the Chairman of the Mathare United Landlord organization P (MALUO) reported that negotiation between Landlords and illegal occupants of houses in Mathare is ongoing. So far at least 111 illegal tenants have agreed to leave the houses. KVP (Kenya Veterans for Peace) has been facilitating this process.

–    It was reported that some illegal occupants were being supported by the area Chief.

–    Residents in Mathare still fear that they are being marked.

–    Gangs involved in harassing residents mostly come from Baba Dogo area and are largely responsible for the massive destruction of infrastructure. Names are known to police and DC, but nothing is being done to stop them.
