Dr Machage, the Kuria MP and Mr Kapondi allegedly threatened Kenyans of bloodshed, evictions and religious wars if the Proposed Constitution is passed. But the Roads Assistant Minister said he was not aware of any police summons. Machage said he was ready to meet the police and explain to them anything they will be interested in knowing. "As far as I am concerned, I have not committed any crime to warrant police summons. But if they want to talk to me, I will be available any time," said the Kuria MP. "What I said, and which I still stand by is that under the new constitution, communities will easily take advantage of a provision of ancestral land taken forcefully from them to cause problems. That is what we want avoided by telling Kenyans the plain truth of the meaning of some sections of the Chapter on Land," said a defiant Machage. He added that his own Kuria community "will surely reclaim" its ancestral land, which stretches up to Awendo, in Rongo District. "We would do so since it would be law, even if it means using some force," he warned. Driven away Machage further claimed the new law would require the Kikuyu in Rift Valley to leave as well as other communities since the Kalenjin will have all the rights to claim it. And he told residents of Nairobi to prepare to give way for the Maasai who initially owned the plains before colonialists drove them away. Kapondi supported Machage’s interpretation, saying his Sabaot tribesmen will claim Bungoma and Trans Nzoia districts. The MP could not be reached to confirm if he had received summons. Ruto also warned proposed legislation on land would take Kenya the Zimbabwe way, which police termed as inciting. Public utterances In Zimbabwe a section of citizens ganged up and claimed what they believe was their ancestral land. Chairman of the National Cohesion and Integration Commission Mzalendo Kibunja said investigations have begun on the matter.
