New Twist In Laikipia Clashes As ODM Senator Alleges Hustler Nation Narrative Is Fueling Skirmishes

Vocal ODM Senator For Homa Bay Ochilo Ayako has allegedly claimed that the Hustler Nation Movement's narrative could be fueling the ongoing skirmishes in Laikipia County. Speaking at K24 TV on Tuesday night, the Homa Bay Senator allegedly said that the clashes cannot be said to be purely emanating from search for pasture. The senator said that there are leaders who are taking advantage of the persistent drought to cause conflicts in the region. Ochilo Ayako went ahead to disagree with fellow panelist, who is also the Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Gladys Shollei who had said that the clashes are being caused by lack of pasture.

"These skirmishes being seen in Laikipia are not purely emanating from drought. There are some dangerous narrative that could be fueling the clashes. Even the area senator told Senate that it's because of unhinged Politics from certain quarters. It's not proper to purely attribute it to drought. Politics is charging people and there may come a when we may not be able to manage them," said the Homa Bay Senator.
