$0.5m ready for herders whose cattle were seized and auctioned in Tanzania
KENYA: The government will pay herders whose cattle were seized by Tanzanian government late last year about $400 per head in the dispute that nearly ignited diplomatic standoff between the two countries.
Director of Livestock Production Julius Kiptarus said that the government has released the $530,000 compensation package which will be paid to 22 livestock keepers who lost 1,325 herds of cattle. He said delay had been caused by the due diligence done to ensure the monies went to the right beneficiaries..
More than 10,000 cows from Kenya Uganda and Rwanda were seized and auctioned in 2017.
