Govt urged to restrain pastoralists

24 June 2013, 11:56 Steve Wambugu

The Rift Valley Council of Elders have called on the government to act on pastoralists who graze on land belonging to the victims of the 2007-2008 skirmishes in Laikipia County.

Addressing journalists in Nakuru over the weekend, the elders led by the council spokes person Gilbert Kabage said that it has become difficult for some victims to return to their previous farms owing to insecurity.

Kabage said that with the frequent cattle raid incidents in the area, IDPS have opted to live in rental houses within trading centres in Laikipia and as a result pastoralists have taken advantage of their land.

He said that with the inception of devolved governments, this problem should be dealt with both at the national and County level.

He said that disarming of pastoralist communities could be one of the big steps towards achieving peace and security for residents of Laikipia.

Kabage said that IDPS are willing to return to their farms and continue with their lives thus the government has the obligation to provide security to them.
