They have invaded laikipia with thousands of animals and killed numerous wild animals. Govt must do something to stem this lawlessness.

Pokot raiders stormed Mugie conservancy in Laikipia on Wednesday evening, stealing 490 Steers worth Sh30 million.

Heavy gunfire was reported at the facility as mobs of attackers engaged guards who tried to repulse the assailants.

A source from the conservancy told the Star that they are worried that police are yet to intervene over the attacks.

The craziest advice from govt....

Do not agitate killer Pokot bandits, Baringo residents now told

Baringo county security officers have warned residents against unnerving Pokot bandits saying they are very dangerous and can kill.

County commissioner Peter Okwanyo noted that they have crossed their borders to find pasture for their animals amid an acute drought.

He told a peace baraza at Kagir on Thursday that they may continue looking for pasture until mid April when the weather is likely to change.

Further noting that Pokot bandits "are not people to joke with", Okwanyo said locals should not carry out retaliatory attacks.

"They are very delicate people, like cats. If you push them to the wall intending to kill them, they will turn back and tear you apart," he said.

"Lay low, graze and water your livestock together peacefully until it rains and they get back to their homes," he said and advised against theft.

Why is the star the only newspaper reporting on these invasions? These guys are killing wild life and burning lodges. Tourists are now being evacuated. Kwani we don't have a government?

I think this is very sound advise from someone who understands the conditions of the pastoral communities; Pokot, Turkana, Samburu etc.

In drought conditions like we have now the best advise is coexistence and trying to get along. The conditions themselves will create hostility and some people will die like they have always died in the never ending hostilities but you can never take a hardline position as a government unless you want to commit genocide. These are warrior communities and they have a way of life that predates Kenya, actually many of them talk about going to Kenya when they want to go to Kitale or Kapenguria. The best a government can do is to contain the hostilities so they do not spill over as you allow slower more effective peace making means like education and cultural changes to take root. This is problem that takes decades to solve. If in 30 years the killings have reduced by 50% you consider that a success.

Okwanyo is just telling people the truth. Serikali does not have the resources to control those herders kila kukizuka nor do they have the will power. Perhaps the best option is to co-exist.

BTW I read recently that a band of 70 Pokot herders attack and some policemen were among those running away. Police convoys have been ambushed, policemen have been shot, police cars burned.

They dont play. Police are trying but wanashindwa. Okwanyo is just telling people ukweli wa mambo. Your best bet is not to provoke these chaps.

The Pokot and the like do not get it when you say they cannot graze in their traditional grazing grounds (conservancies etc) in time of drought. It means their animals die, that is a equivalent to a genocide as their food supply is curtailed. If I was a Pokot in the same situation and there is grass over the ridge, I would drive my animals there too backed up with a few warriors. Calling these people bandits is wrong, it implies they are engaging in wilful criminal activity.
