THE WAR ATTACKS IN NOTHERN KENYA

Innocent Kenyans have witnessed many bloody inter-clan clashes over cattle rustling, water and pasture not only that, armed raiders from the neighbouring countries have been crossing into the country staging attacks on local villagers in the northern area Turkana and this has left many kenyans dead since they cannot be able to protect themselves because of the disarmament exercise in the rift valley and north- eastern inter-communal attacks, The government protection from the attacks from the neighbouring countries also seems not to be enough. Is this really fair for the nothern innocent kenyans and the pastoral community? the government should act fast and not only act by mouth but by actions.

FARMING IN THE PASTORALIST AREA SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED

Farming is like a dream come true in  the pastoralist areas for example in mandera where irrigation brings hope to the rhamu residents thanks to the N.G.O based in that village which has educated the residents  and also in samburu along the baragoi road, poro, malaso lpartuk where agriculture has been adopted as a means of survival pastoralism being the first. With the support of non-governmental organizations and the government livestock will not be the only source of livelihood for the pastoralists.

POLICE BRUTALITY SHOULD BE STOPPED

Much is needed in the protection of the pastoralists community. In  the village of lekji in Laikipia  north where the police shot and seriously wounded a teeneger sanaiyo lesian  the police should not use force and brutality  in  the eviction or any land dispute  but embrace dialogue.
