Kenya Para-military driving away Samburu cattle
The government disarmed Samburu in 2006 while arming all other ethnic groups along the borders of Uganda, Sudan, Ethiopia and Somalia. We also know today, that Kenya has also been secretly training Somali youth in Kenya…
Today’s updates from the facebook uploads coming from Samburu(Laikipia North District of Kenya)
At dawn Sunday, Nov 22 Kenya Police returned to the Lurora, Loruko and Lokumai areas and continue to beat, rob, and rape the Samburu people in those communities. Several people have been hospitalized with injuries. The “disarmament” operation —of only one tribe– seems a coverup, giving the police opportunity to act yet again with impunity. Those with Flip video cameras, record survivors’ testimonies asap.

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.
Saidimu Ole Ngais
