Drought

New Twist in Rumuruti Chaos as Pastoralists Say they only Graze after Paying for Pasture

The conflict between Pastoralist and farmers communities in in Rumuruti has taken a new twist after The Identified Turkana hearders argue that they have never set foot into peoples farm for pasture without their consent. Some of the Pastoralists requested to be listened as they are out to save their livestock from drought which is in their motherland.

In a meeting held by representatives from the two groups, it came out clean that the herders only graze their livestock in areas where they have agreed with owners upon paying for the pasture. In chaos which get ugly with bloodshed, some of the farmers want a double pay or try to force the animals out of their farm after taking the Pastoralists money.

The representatives agreed on respect to peoples property, something which will bring mutual benefit for each party. This way the two groups will live together in peace. No incidences have been heard in the last two days as police report no use of force in helping the two settle for peace.
