No Nonsense, New Shape In Laikipia As Commandos Fully Takes Center Stage

Government deploys dreaded GSU, RDU officers to restore calm in Laikipia. Heavy deployment due to reports that bandits had sophisticated weapons. Police APCs deployed to access far areas in the difficult terrain.

Exclusive aerial footage showing armed bandits in volatile Ol Moran area inside the Laikipia nature conservancy; subdued and running for safety.

Bandits causing havoc in Laikipia are armed with guns used by military in foreign countries, which Kenya's police do not have, Regional Commissioner George Natembeya said.

Ol-Moran residents fear going back to their homes despite assurances. Residents say they fear that they will suffer from fresh attacks. Reopening of closed schools in limbo with residents fearing for their security.

The government assisting displaced residents resettle after recent attacks in Laikipia even as we ramp up security and other measures to restore calm and peaceful coexistence among communities in the region.

The Laikipia conflict represents the failure by the state to address historical land wrongs. On behalf of Samburu community, Yash Ghai & I challenged the grabbing of Eland Downs by ex pres Moi & subsequent purchase thereof by Nature conservancy.
