Why did people invade Uhuru Kenyatta’s Kedong farm in Narok? Police report
Uhuru Kenyatta farm in Naork under attack. Tensions are at an all-time high at the former president’s Kedong property, which is on the border of Narok and Nakuru counties and where a group of rowdy kids attempted to damage the barrier.
Officials in charge of security in Narok County say that the police used tear gas to get the kids to move on.
“According to the information we have, some teenagers from the nearby village planned to break into the large area of more than 75,000 acres and damage property.”
“As early as six in the morning, we put our anti-riot police in place.”
At the time, county commissioner Isaac Masinde said, “They were successful in stopping the teens from taking over the property.”
The administrator stated that security personnel were keeping an eye on the situation, which he described as quiet.
But Mr. Masinde’s report seemed to contradict that of the police, who said that the break-in might have been caused by a fight between two clusters that have very different ideas about how to spend the money made from sand harvesting.
Mr. Masinde’s report came out to contradict the police report because it said that the dispute was about the money made from taking sand.
Jared Marando, the commander of the Narok East Sub-County Police, said that officers on patrol happened to come across a gathering of around 150 boisterous males armed with rungus and swords near the Ketraco intersection on the Narok-Maai Mahiu road.
According to Mr. Marando, “it was proven that there were two parties who were in conflict over money gathered from vehicles after the sale of sand.”
“It was found that two groups had different ideas about how much money trucks brought in after the sale of sand.”
Nonetheless, tear gas was used, and the young people were ordered to disperse.
“On neither side were any casualties recorded during the conflict.”
“At this time, there are no reports of unrest in the region, and officials of the law from both Naivasha and Narok East are present,” said Mr. Marando.
The pastoral Maasai people have claimed that they own the Kedong property, which has caused a lot of debate in the area.
President William Ruto made his first trip to Narok after being voted to office at the beginning of this year.
During that trip, he promised to make sure that the community gets fair treatment regarding the Kedong problem.
The dry port, which the former president Kenyatta constructed during his second term in office, is a part of the property.
