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

Governor Joseph Lenku says Kenya Wildlife Service is becoming a letdown to farmers for failure to pay consolation money to victims of wildlife attacks.

Lenku says the people have always given them time and space to address concerns of the Maasai community but that nothing is positively forthcoming on their part.

The governor was speaking during the recent the Maasai Olympics held at Kimana when he said he strongly feels the neglect of the Maasai community by KWS is running out of hand.

“Our people who have lost their family members remain uncompensated for years now. Some residents still have permanent scars after being maimed by wildlife,” lamented Lenku.

He went on; “Our farms continue to be destroyed by marauding animals and yet KWS doesn’t see that it is their responsibility to keep their animals away from the people”.

He wondered why KWS has failed to employ local Maasai and instead import labour and yet the jobs can be managed well by locals.

“It is pathetic and we are saying KWS must style up or ship out of Kajiado. We need justice, we need fair play. We have suffered for too long,” the governor added.

He said he will take upon himself to ensure those pending compensations are expedited. The governor congratulated Rombo youth who were recognized for their best wildlife conservation practices.
