A couple of months ago, we documented a couple of incidents where land was confiscated and people were evicted under the threat of their lives. Some were killed. Homes were burned down. Women were raped. People were stripped of their possessions. All of this for environmentental concerns and causes. You can read about them here and here.
Today we see more harvesting of the rotten fruits that were planted by these maniacs. Two American-based charities, the Nature Conservancy and the African Wildlife Foundation have caused more of the same in Kenya.
The Samburu people were living on 17,100 acres called Eland Downs in Laikipia, a lush area near Mount Kenya. Apparently, land ownership was claimed by former president Daniel arap Moi. The Nature Conservancy and the African Wildlife Foundation paid money to Moi for the land and then gifted the land to Kenya for the purpose to create a national park to be run by the Kenya Wildlife Service.
“Last year, when the community was forcefully evicted from the land … their homes were burnt down and livestock confiscated in their hundreds and lots of their women were violated,” said Korir Sing’Oei, the Samburu’s lawyer
At least three people are said to have died during the row, including a child who was eaten by a lion after the Samburu were violently evicted in November last year.

The U.S. justice department needs to investigate this. The Nature Conservancy and the African Wildlife Foundation knew exactly what they were doing and what was going to happen to these people. And they’re using the Kenyan law enforcement to dislocate these people. Their role in the loss of life seems to be purposeful or at least extreme indifference.
