Tuesday the Foot patrol crew came across 9 breaks in the boundary stone wall….mostly in the Karuwao section. No stock was seen inside but obvious signs of large herds of cattle and small stock accessing the farm at night. Wall building and fencing work ongoing.
Tuesday night after 9pm we received phone calls and messages from members of the communities around us warning us that big herds of cattle had arrived and were inside the farm.
Today 17 breaks were found and repaired by the Foot Patrol crew who also impounded 18 head of Pokot goats. The Police and NPR joint boundary and internal patrol came across 125 head of Pokot cattle which again have been impounded. These are in incredibly good condition !!! They admit to coming from Ol Maisor and Suyian before that.
There is a continual buildup on the Karuwao boundary of Pokot cattle and small stock….over 20 bomas.
Farm chores continue, and our cattle still being fed hay and feed as its too risky to go too far and the grass is minimal and soon to be eaten out all over again !
