Another relatively peaceful day, Police assisting with boundary and internal patrols and four breaks in boundary wall although not all boundary covered. Foot patrols continuing too.
Owners of impounded goats came and paid their grazing fine.
Dairy cows let out for grazing and down to 20 bails of hay a day and enjoying their change of scene.
No armed men or illegal stock seen – info suggests that they are now coming in at night. Reports also suggest that there are still armed men in the area.
A gazette notice has been issued for disarmament by IG Police Boinnet which is another positive step forward.
Parts of Laikipia have now been declared “Disturbed and Dangerous Areas” for 30 days which will hopefully improve things, and now H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta has given the order for the KDF to be deployed to Laikipia as well as Baringo. This we hope will enable the situation to be brought under control and the area cleaned up of illegal cattle but also the illegal weapons and the hundreds of armed men. We have to hope and believe and pray that law and order and peace will be restored.
Yes this is now a drought – it wasn’t when all this started late last year ….now a convinient excuse…..it’s not about Kiangazi na Nyasi.
Please keep SHARING about what is going on in Laikipia.
