Kajiado Deputy Governor Martin Moshisho led hundreds of Matapato residents to file a petition to the Kenya Wildlife Service seeking intervention on the rise in human-wildlife conflicts in Letoire area of Matapato North.
Moshisho, who was accompanied by Matapato leaders, received the petition on behalf of the community.
“Wild animals are causing a lot of damages across the County. The number of deaths related to wild-human conflict is alarming and our people have today presented their grievances to us as leaders that need to be urgently addressed,” Moshisho said.
Moshisho said that they are in support of the people whose lives are precious and called for their interests to be mutually taken care of.
Moshisho called on the KWS to ensure that their voices and grievances are heard and their rights protected.
