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
Nor do you make an 'effort' to ASK - instead, with a mule-headed white stubborness, you say we know nothing. Well, let us educate you 101 @BBCBreaking and @theresa_may. The picture you used - those elephants were NAPPING - SLEEPING 😂

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
we do not need the "BRITISH army" in AFRICA pretending to 'look after' OUR WILD LIFE - under any circumstances. Neither do we want royalty, Europeans Americans or anyone coming here to KILL OUR WILD LIFE.

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.

You've raised a valid Point @lesoi_ndoka - #CONservationists force #LOCALS pay to see Kenyan #wildlife.. #Business as usual?? Yet, @DSWT raises vasts amount of money through FUNDING and have branches of @DSWT throughout the world.
@MwangP01 @JamesOhayo @gathara @alaminkimathi
Take a look at this page for the David Sheldrick Wildlife Fund: - "You can foster an elephant for a Minimum annual donation of US$50 (GBP£35)" or 4515.35. They have millions of donations across the world..

Charging our children 500/- or any Kenyan to touch and see Wild Life in Funded sanctuaries is plain wrong - #CONservation is about care - but unfortunately the truth is that it's big MONEY and locals are locked out..

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....
#CONservation
#TheBigWhiteLie
@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.

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.

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
@wmnjoya
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]
