The Money is BIG @bonifacemwangi BIG. Land issues of #Samburu #Maa, #Rendille #Pokot is Politicians + #NIRT with #GoK behind them - and behind the land sales - they also use @NPSOfficial_KE, @AP's to evict pastoralists.
@ckfoot @gathara @alaminkimathi
Because it seems that this line of #CONservation has gotten international attention and more people are decrying the evictions of land from the indigenous community - the conservationists have taken an ugly turn - Sell wildlife....

@NationBreaking
Yet this is just as disastrous as evicting indigenous pastoralists.
• WILD LIFE belongs to #KENYANS as a whole, it cannot belong to eg, #NRT because it happens to be within those fences - fences which we agree, were put up illegally.

#Chinese. #Drones. #Rhinos
The narrative is that "Africans poach" We do not. The truth is that Chinese in #Laikipia are a threat for locals, for Rhinos & Elephants. #Kenyans need to be on high Alert.

Unfortunately, Chinese are invading #Meru as well - another Rhino Sanctuary through #thebigwhitelie of 'investing in' a 5 star hotel. Can we stop this via civil suit before Gov.Kiraitu Murungi @SenKiraitu sells our Heritage?
@MuthoniMicheni @alaminkimathi @muhimu07
MERU, KENYA: "Mayor Liu Xiaohua of Huangshan Municipal from #China has led a delegation of Chinese investors who want to build tourist resorts in Mt Kenya - To @SenKiraitu - this is a DANGEROUS move.

Secondly, despite going around the country in a 'secret & sudden' rush asking people about whether they'd like kill our Wild Life for bush meet, most answers from Kenyans boiled down to a firm NO!! .../2

Here's the Breakdown of the Total rejection of this 'bill'.
1. Ethical consideration: it will legitimize #consumption and #killing of wildlife.
2.The cost of implementation and control will supersede the gains.
3. It is a fallacy [a #bigwhitelie to say that proceeds ..
..will go back to community. @KWS generates a stunning 257 Billion Kenya shillings but only receives 4Billion of a budgetary support against an annual budget of 23Billion to care for Wildlife across 54 parks & reserves.
