Herdsmen risk not voting

26 November 2012, 13:21 James Kabotia

Over 300 people from Segera location in Laikipia North Constituency might not register as voters after their Identity Cards were confiscated by a private ranch.

The herders said that their cattle were held at Segera Ranch six years ago.

The herdsmen were held for illegal grazing, forcing them to give out their IDs in order to be released.

Speaking at Kabarak Farm House registration centre, the herdsmen said that they could not afford the fines imposed.
They had been asked to give KES 500 per cow, which is approximately KES 40 000 – 50 000 per person.

Laikipia North parliamentary aspirant Richard Leiyagu, said that residents did not vote in 2007 elections and also during the constitution referendum in 2009 for lack of IDs.

He noted that the ranch management has only released 20 IDs to Ng’are Ng’iro OCS after he intervened, and called on those concerned to release the remaining IDs so that everyone in the area can register and participate in the general elections.
The ranch management could not be reached comments.
