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..
#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 😂

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....

@VMatiru @kwskenya ... /3
Here's the Breakdown of the Total rejection of this 'bill'.
1. Ethical consideration: it will legitimize #consumption and #killing of wildlife.

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
@alaminkimathi @Citizen_Alert1 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.
