Livestock both Pokot and Samburu continue to build up in large numbers on our boundarys and access the farm mainly at night. There isn’t much grass but better than outside the farm I guess.
Today saw the Foot Patrols come across and repair 18 breaks in the boundary stone wall and then came across and impounded 83 head of Samburu cattle. As they were rounding them up they were under pressure from the owners and called for back up and the NPR and Police went to support them. Two Samburu arrested and taken to Rumuruti Police Station.
CID from Rumuruti came and photographed the 75 head of Pokot cattle impounded yesterday and they were then released as information led the Police to think there was retaliation planned. 3 Pokot were arrested and taken to Rumuruti Police Station.
Wall building in the Morogo valley continues where the seasonal river comes into the farm and a weak point for livestock to access.
