Killing of cattle by police was an act of sabotage
I am dismayed and perplexed by the killing of cattle by the police in Laikipia last week. We have seen depressing photos of carcases lying on the Laikipia plains. What puzzles me more is the confession by the Inspector General of Police, that the police killed the cows because the herders, whom he called bandits, were hiding among the cows. How is that possible? That you can shoot cows in their hundreds because there were people hiding within the herd? This act is not only cruelty to animals but also an act of economic sabotage. Cows are meant to benefit the farmer. What message is the government conveying to the innocent herders?
