The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Rift Valley -

Last month, Naivasha fish­er­men clashed with Kenya Wildlife Ser­vice rangers, whom they ac­cused of steal­ing their fish and nets. Dur­ing the in­ci­dent at Karagita, the fish­er­men con­fis­cated a boat used by the rangers and the al­legedly stolen fish. They ac­cusedhe of­fi­cers of over­step­ping their man­date. At one time, the of­fi­cers had to cock their guns when more than 100 fish­er­men and traders cor­nered them. The group said the of­fi­cers have been frus­trat­ing them for a month.
