Kenya has shot up to 2nd Place after DRC.
MINING IN KENYA - the untold story of Gems under Kenya's Earth.
A Blue Sapphire mined from Garbatulla, Isiolo Kenya. #thebigconservationlie #thebigwhitelie
Worth far more is the Yellow Sapphire, also from Garbatulla, Isiolo Kenya. For further info, contact the following and do not let them give you the run-around. @UKenyatta President of Kenya, PS Minerals and Petroleum @ps_madinikenya and @MadiniKenya #thebigwhitelie
One of the reasons we do not want the #BRITISH in #Africa is because of the rubbish about we, the Natives. We do not want you here, even if you 'spoke to our 'leaders''... peddling your #bigwhitelies to a population for pity. You know NOTHING ABOUT us.. #propaganda #LiesLiesLies
Because the Brits are so QUICK to judge the 'AFRICAN' as 'backward' and use this propaganda that we're a 'wild and wicked bunch of helpless idiots' who cannot take care of their own wild life when the truth is - the poaching trade is controlled by CAUCASIANS and called #hunting
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. #BeefPrices #CattlePrices #thebigwhitelie
"Dressed weight refers to the weight of an animal after being partially butchered, removing all the internal organs and oftentimes the head as well as inedible portions of the tail and legs." The Beef Site. November 22, 2006.
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. #thebigwhitelie #thebigconservationlie
The problem with TNC is that they're a FOREIGN company, and Nairobians are 'buying' water from them. 2. #TNC, can sell the land anytime they wish to, to a 3rd party which may or may not value the land as 'Riparian' - worse, they have done this before in Brazil & Australia.
.. to Mining or Oil companies. What most Kenyans are unaware of, is that Oil was found in the Aberdares in early 2014. Now join the dots - we shall pay @nature_org for water while they'll use the same water, to drill for oil? #thebigwhitelie
../4 ... if you look carefully at the map below, you'll notice that the area for exploration that includes both the Aberdares & Mau forest, belongs to NOCK - @NationalOilKE. Meet the new Board, as of June 28th. @nature_org #thebigwhitelie
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. #TheBigWhiteLie #NRTLetOurPeopleGo
