Kenya's displaced get help to return home

Government move to resettle those uprooted by 2008 violence gives hope to some but draws criticism from opposition.

    The Kenyan government is resettling internally displaced people forced out of their homes in 2008 by post-election violence that claimed more than 1,200 lives.

    But opposition politicians say the government’s efforts to resettle the displaced now are part of a charm offensive ahead of Deputy President William Ruto's trial that starts on Tuesday.

    He stands accused of planning activities that led to murder, forceful evictions and rape.
