We did not kill Maasai herders, KFS rangers say

28 December 2015, 12:26 Jackson Okata

Narok - The Kenya Forest Service (KFS) has defended its officers against allegations that they were involved in the inter-ethnic clashes between the Kipsigis and Masaai communities on the border of Narok and Nakuru counties.

KFS Mau forest senior officer, Joseph Mutoro has said allegations that his officers took sides and shot two herders from the Maa community are unfounded.

Speaking Sunday at Olengurone during a security meeting with Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery, Mutoro said the forest rangers only tried to prevent herders from burning the forest.

He added that rangers guarding the Mau forest are ready for investigations and that he is ready to avail their guns for ballistic tests.

"No single forest ranger killed a Maasai herder and we are ready to provide all the guns to undergo a ballistic test to establish if indeed any of our officers was involved," said Mutoro.

"The rangers were only protecting the forest from being set on fire," he added.

On Sunday, Nkaissery imposed a 6pm to 6am curfew in Mau Narok as a way of preventing the clashes from escalating.
