Abstract: Internal displacement of persons is not a new phenomenon in the world, this has led to international attention towards the plight of displaced persons and Kenya is no exception. This research is on the situation of IDPs in Kenya specifically those were displaced in Rift Valley, Uasin Gishu by post election violence and other man made or natural causes. The study investigates the challenges faced by the IDPs in Uasin Gishu and specifically examines the existing legal framework protecting internally displaced persons in Kenya. It is also aims to establish the steps, if any, taken by government to address the plights of internally displaced person, especially the role played by Ministry of State for Special Programmes in charge of DPS. Through the course of the study, the researcher discovered that the situation of many IDPs reveal many vulnerabilities and an urgent humanitarian need to address their deplorable living conditions and other human rights conditions of displaced persons. It also came to the knowledge of the researcher that the current Kenyan laws are not sufficient enough to adequately cater for the rights of IDPs as it is yet for the Kenyan parliament to pass the Internally Displaced Bill into law and adopt the draft national IDP policy not also mentioning ratifying the Kampala Convention at the earliest opportunity in a bid to enhance the protection of their rights of IDPs. This research suggests solutions to the government on how best to handle IDPs including propounding the view of embracing durable solution such as maintain peace in the country to ensure that conflicts that result to displacement ceases and do not recur in the future.
