Just received from Ole Naishu –
Ole Naishu has seen a marked reduction in the numbers of livestock illegally grazing on the ranch over the last two days. This may be attributed to action by the authorities, depleted grazing and tension between Samburu and Turkana herders who were illegally grazing on the ranch. The main mass of Samburu cattle that were boma’d within the ranch moved off on the night of 28th July. There has been extensive damage to ranch infrastructure. Herders from areas as far afield as Habaswein, Isiolo, Kipsing and Lodongokwe have been detained recently. Large herds of cattle and in particular sheep remain destroying what little grass is left. We are grateful for the continued support received from the Kenya Police, who have enabled us to continue operating during difficult times.
