The thing we should know about the fight against illegal, inappropriate and improper wildlife management & poaching in Kenya is it's about land pia! Land rights!

The invasion of Laikipia & the militarization of Northern Rangers Trust is not only about wildlife. You cannot tell me a people who have spent centuries killing animals for fun can wake up one bright morning and decide to protect them.

If that's the case then I whats the secret because I've always want to quit my love for sore gummy bears like yesterday where do I sign up?

Now they want to start game farming? On whose land will they farm these game animals?
- Chichi Koech
Will they still charge the same amount to have game in one's property?Will Kenyans be allowed to farm wild animals ama it will be a luxury for the white, rich and connected?
Dear Africans see how one white man's death warrants an investigation.

Sisi hapa we are still telling the Maa community "mko sure watu walikuja attack nyinyi?" While staring at the corpses of their dead cattle and injured loved ones. In Kalenjin as much as we kill animals for food we treat them with respect.

.@OkiyaOmtatah goes to court for a mention of his case like he has done every month since 2011. The magistrate is late for an hour, prosecution agrees with him that he attends another PIL case he has at the environmental tribunal, a superior court. Magistrate orders his arrest.
Magistrate won't hear Omtatah waited for an hour but had to go to the higher court and requested his case be mentioned after he was done with the tribunal as happens in court always. He promptly issues a warrant of arrest and goes away without hearing any other case. #FreeOmtatah
.@OkiyaOmtatah returns from the tribunal to find policemen waiting for him with the warrant of arrest and he's promptly whisked away to Kilimani police station. He refuses to enter the cells without being booked in the OB and vows to fight on till it's done. #FreeOmtatah

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.
