We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

More than 200 heads cattle have been detained by police at Ngong veterinary demonstration farm and 17 of them have suffered panga cuts.

The heads of cattle belonging to the Keek-Onyokie Maasai from Kajiado West constituency were yesterday still detained without water or hay at the farm.

Ngong officer-in-charge of the police station, Renson Ngambo, who had detained the livestock on Tuesday morning, denied he is part of the gang that maimed the cows.

Irate Maasai elders showed the injured livestock to a journalist, who counted 17 of them with deep panga cuts, on their legs, necks and heads.


Three of the cows had broken horns and appeared to have been bludgeoned with iron rods.

Ngambo was at pains to explain how the cows were cut and bludgeoned with metal rods and only said the police have launched investigations into the incident that has raised serious with the local politicians and members of the community.

Speaking at the farm, Ngambo appealed for calm as the police carry investigations but the local elders demanded that the police and the manager of the farm be held responsible.

The Orange Democratic Movement party Senate aspirant, Daniel Tinaai, who hails from the community called for investigations into the incident and appealed to the community to approach the matter in a matter that could not lead to chaos.


“We heading to the elections and I appeal to you to be sober as we await the police to do their investigations. I will ensure that our people are compensated. Whoever did this act does not deserve to live with people,” said Tinaai.

Jeremiah ole Kanai said police detained the livestock at 9am on Tuesday and were supposed to arraign the owners in court for grazing their cows in a government farm.

“When we woke up this morning and realized that some of the cows had been maimed, the police retracted their intended action and told us to take our livestock away,” claimed Kanai.

Kana, however, said the owners of the livestock refused and demanded that the police explain what happened to their cows.

Ngong assistant county commissioner (1), Annete Mwangi visited the scene but never addressed the irate locals.
