A Migori based international business magnate has urged all those who were internally displaced in the post poll upheavals to return to their respective homes.
Fred Otieno Rangili who contested the vast Migori parliamentary seat on a PNU ticket and lost due to the strong ODM euphoria in the region told the news conference that signing of the National Peace Accord between the two protagonists- Hon Mwai Kibaki and Raila Odinga,and the subsequent formation of a grand coalition government by the duo principals has restored state of normalcy in the country.
Those who were forcefully evicted from their land or fled for their dear lives should be free to come back home and till their land since it is a rainy season said the popular Rangili, flanked by area political leaders and elders who promised to preach peace and co-existence.
The post election skirmishes triggered by the announcement of the much discredited and disputed elections by the ECK saw over 1000 thousand Kenyans loosing their lives and over 350,000 thousand people displaced,with, some seeking refuge in the neighboring country and also properties worth billions of shillings destroyed, countrywide.
The Migori leaders call for the IDPs, comes in the wake of the governments move to resettle all the IDPs in an operation dubbed Rudi Nyumbani.
