Laikipia residents demand electrical fence to curb human-wildlife conflict

20 April 2016, 14:09 Joseph Njung’eh

Laikipia - Laikipia West Sub-County residents have protested against the delayed erection of an electrical fence around Rumuruti forest.

The county government had in the 2014-2015 Fiscal Year allocated KES.96 million to put up a 60 kilometer electric fence to control human-wildlife conflict in the region.

They said the contractor who had been awarded the job allegedly withdrew his services after the county administration failed to pay him his dues.

They complained that the tender was a sham, adding that the contractor’s work was sub-standard.

Speaking at Gatundia trading centre the residents lamented that the county Governor Joshua Irungu failed to turn up for the meeting despite inviting him.

They decried the destruction of crops by wild animals, adding that the delay in the construction of the electric fence was negatively impacting the economy.

The fence was meant to keep wild animals from straying into human settlement.

They regretted that school going children go to school late for fear of being attacked by the animals and hence affecting their education.

They called on the National Government to intervene, adding that the county had failed them.
