50 shitty days in the last 171…..which is nearly half a year !!! Quite shocking when you stop and think about it. Crazy crazy times that have changed the whole way you look at life. I think I am a pretty positive person and try to see the best in everything but something like this pushes you to your limits.
This morning I wrote ‘this could be the new ‘normal’ and we have to think and plan for that’ …it’s hard to see generations of hard work destroyed and try and work out the way forward, how can you catch up on 60 years of work ……a truly daunting task ahead.
So what happened today….there were 8 breaks in the repaired stonewall on the Pesi section – all now repaired again, 3 breaks in the repaired stone wall on the Lorian section and 1 break on the Karuwao section….again all repaired again….but then patrolling and rebuilding couldn’t continue as the Police officers with George and the building crew decided the next section was too unsafe…..this was where for two days last week we had hassles, George and the crew almost ambushed and fired at and staff chased off the following day.
There is still illegal livestock inside the farm – hundreds of sheep and goats and quite a few herds of cattle, only children were seen with the stock, no doubt the adults wouldn’t have been far away…but it makes it pretty much impossible to do anything.
Further north the sheer numbers of illegal cattle on Suyian, Sosian and Ol Maisor are shocking and a huge amount of poaching too
Please please SHARE posts you read about what is going on in Laikipia – it’s hard to understand but so many people still don’t realise what is going on.
