Calculations are based on $2,497 / 412 lbs. = $6.06, this average will run from $6.50 to $6.75 per pound for #organic pasture grazed, grass-fed beef. This is about the price of one pound of ground grass-fed beef at a #farmersmarket or at #WholeFoodsMarket. 1 pound is 0.453592kg
...apologies for the heart attacks based on earlier tweets with the extra zero. [I gave myself one too] This is the dressed weight price - or carcass of the cow alone.

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.

The Kenyan Vets were sidelined to pave way for AFRICA PARKS who will manage our Game Parks. Balala @tunajibu has been paid, it's not about 'race'. It is about a new regime in the North run by the British. Africa Park's President is Prince Harry

mathenge joe @mathengejn >>"Ian Craig is the new Cecil Rhodes,the new #coloniser who confirms the adage that colonisers never went anywhere; they have just changed tactics and that's why we need to be entirely vigilant.
We agree: Let us look at the timelines

Our President @UKenyatta did a "deal" back when he was confirmed as President. He did this with the Royal Family. Recently, he signed a secret letter with Space For Giants. And @BrandKenya was unveiled....
Maasai were the most important natives on the branding - as servants

This is the Berlin Conference all over again. Cut & Slice Africa, disregard what the indigenous owners of the land say. But you make your choice. Here is the thread.
TiTLE Northern Rangelands Trust (NRT), and IEBC Kenya on scrapping of #Constituencies in Northern Kenya.
#NRT, @USAID several @EU_Commission countries are lobbying the @IEBCKenya and the Environment, Mining, Minerals, Wildlife and Pollution Committee in #KENYAN Parliament to scrap constituencies to make one single 'manageable' constituency in Northern Kenya.
[Note that #NRT is owned by the @RoyalFamily. It is NOT owned by 'the communities' - who have no land title deeds - all this land has been "grabbed" though eviction, burning homes, killing cattle, poisoning boreholes and "NRT" does not benefit the community in any manner]

Mercenaries have been hired to exploit Kenya's natural resources (wildlife, oil and minerals) for economic gain. The reasons go back many years, but there is one recent salient element that reflects all.

During 2003, against the backdrop of the turmoil and scandal within the Kenyan Wildlife Services (KWS), secret and private conversations were being held on how to manipulate this turmoil to take control of Kenya's natural resources (wildlife and minerals) for economic gain.(DM)
The major protagonists at these shadowy and clandestine meetings were Ian Craig of Kenya's Lewa Conservancy and David Walker - owner and director of the world's most notorious mercenary organisation Saladin Security.
