Just received from Sosian
The results of a failed plan…………The local MP will claim these cattle have been killed by the government or the ranchers but the reality is it is a direct result of incitement to invade private land that has led to the deaths of these and hundreds , if not thousands of cattle, sheep and goats. These belonged to a Pokot community who were leasing grazing from Sosian . In a normal year the planned grazing would have ensured their animals survived. However the invaders destroyed that plan and the losers are the people of Laikipia, except the cattle barons who cashed in and moved on converting stolen government funds into cattle and then back to cash. Will the community learn who to trust after these losses? Time will tell.
