Just received from LNC –
A huge influx of cattle seen coming into LNC over the last few days. We estimate 10,000 head, most of them residing in bomas on us. Possibly fleeing the actions taken by Govt. further east. Samburu cattle joining the Pokot in large numbers for the first time this year. A group of Pokot are pretending to call for peace and promising to stop shooting at cars and dismantle road blocks but in truth there is no change in their attitude – there has been gun fire daily and huge road blocks still everywhere – and we believe this ‘peace meeting’ to only be an effort to try and stall a KDF operation from resuming here.
Serious road block !
