Dear Mr. Kamalesh Sharma
Kamlesh Shaman. Commonwealth Secretary General
Please bring to the immediate attention of the Commonwealth ministers an ongoing humanitarian and human rights crisis in Kenya.
The Samburu Indigenous People are being systematically killed, terrorized and deprived of their livelihood in an apparent effort to remove them from their lands so that Chinese companies can conduct oil explorations there.
I urge you to undertake immediate investigation of alleged acts of mass murder, torture, terror and theft of Samburu cattle (their primary food source) by Kenyan military and police forces and by mercenaries in their employ.
These atrocities have been reported to Kenyan government authorities to no avail. The international community, and particularly the Commonwealth nations, must act to prevent genocide of the Samburu people.
Thank you for your immediate attention to this issue of grave concern.
