More stonewall building and reinforcing, more foot patrols and more boundary patrols….impounded flock of goats released on payment of fine and 5 boundary wall breaks repaired with some on Pesi section which has been unbroken for a couple of weeks. Following up on information received we learnt that some cattle had been stolen by 12 armed Samburu and Pokot from Hadji Musa on ADC. Together with the AP’s stationed here, others from Rumuruti and our NPR team we managed to recover all seven of them. Huge thanks due to everyone involved and the great result.
Our thoughts are with Kuki, Sveva and Nigel andall the LNC staff as they too go through this horrendous wave of violence and destruction.
As the operation continues the situation gets more volatile on all the farms, with armed men seen leaving the operational space and moving back with livestock and firearms to previously and currently illegally occupied areas.
The enormity of the problem has been downplayed for so long, the KDF/Police operation is ongoing, and will take time as the area to cover is vast and the problem so much bigger than anyone believes. We have to stay positive and hope and pray that illegal guns will be collected, law and order will be restored, and peace will return to Laikipia – but there is still a long bumpy road ahead of us.
Ol Maisor, Sosian, Suyian, Naibor Ranches and LNC are all still under extreme pressure.
I would like to thank everyone for your huge support to all of us caught up in this chaos, it means a lot to all of us and while you might be feeling angry and frustrated over the whole thing, please try and comment with useful and supportive messages and comments and not get caught up and say stuff that just isn’t helpful or could inflame this already extremely delicate and volatile situation.
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
