With the LAPPSET Corridor project foreseen to pass through Isiolo county, we had a 3 day forum where we had sit downs with various community based organizations to establish how much the grass root person knows about the project, identify their fears and educate them on their rights on adequate compensation of their land.
Through the course of the exercise, we were able to establish that there have been violations speculated to rise from the construction of the project. Some of the community members allege that the river Isiolo has been diverted to facilitate the construction of the airport. This information is however dismissed by the airport authorities.
We therefore intend to continue working closely with stakeholders from both the civil society and the county government to bridge the gaps we identify.
