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

Shock waves have rocked Masimba and Merrueshi locations of Kajiado after a human skull was discovered on Tuesday night in the bushes.

Kajiado County Senior Kenya Wildlife Service Warden, Muteru Njauuini, said on Wednesday it is suspected the skull is that of a man who went missing on May 24.

“We also suspect the man was killed by a stray elephant, and now this brings to three the people who have so far been killed by marauding Jumbos from Chyulu Hills National Park in a span of three weeks,” said Njauuini.

As Njauuini explained the circumstances in which the body part was found, Governor Joseph Lenku arrived from Kenya/Poka ward where he visited on Tuesday to condole with families who have lost their loved ones to ongoing elephant menace.

Lenku gave the wildlife agency until Tuesday next week to hunt down all killer elephants or else he would allow the local residents to kill them.

“Three lives have been lost senselessly in the last three weeks. No other person will die as we watch. We want KWS to kill their offending elephants or the people will kill them. Let them take note,” said the Governor.

He said the entire villages in Masimba and Merrueshi were living in fear with school children now unable to freely attend to classes for fear of the animals.

Accompanied by Kenyewa/Poka Ward MCA Henry Kimiti, Lenku said the KWS had been dishonest in their mandate.

“One and a half years ago, KWS told Kajiado residents that they would compensate deaths and injuries caused by wildlife. No one has been paid so far. We take great exception to this injustice,” said the governor.

The governor’s remarks were made at a public baraza at Ilkulunyeti village in the presence of Mashuuru Deputy County Commissioner Stephen Nyakundi, who acknowledged the threat posed by the wildlife.

Community leaders who spoke at the baraza endorsed the proposal to close several schools in the area until the marauding wild animals were contained.

Kajiado KNUT Executive Secretary Elly Korinko supported the residents resolve to shut the schools if KWS was unable to drive away their animals.
