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!

#NRTLetOurPeopleGo 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.

.@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
