Laikipia Nature Conservancy -3rd May 

Message from Sveva

Thank You… I will soon be updating with a few more details of the situation on the ground for those that are interested. 

But in the interim, one thing needs to be clear- these are not just ‘poor pastoralists’ looking for grass, this is a well planned invasion led by militia, operating across the entire region and the worst suffering is borne by other ethnic communities and small holder farmers who have lost over 30 people…. 

There was not a cow in sight when my mother was shot. 

We have a good relationship with our pastoralist neighbours, and we have offered our entire grass bank to them in the drought but these ‘militia’ intervene to disrupt the sensible progress of these efforts.
