Community conservancies in Isiolo County have castigated Governor Mohamed Kuti for linking them to insecurity in the region.
Members of eight community conservancies in the county held a peaceful demonstration in Isiolo town and marched to the office of County Commissioner John Ondego to demand an explanation on why they were being linked to insecurity.
The conservancies in Isiolo include Biliqo Bulesa, Nakuprat-Gotu, Nasuulu, Leparua, Oldonyiro Narupa, Oldonyiro Nanapicho, Oldonyiro Naapu and Oldonyiro Nannapa.
Governor Kuti and Isiolo Woman Rep Rehema Jaldesa recently blamed insecurity experienced in Chari ward on the firearms held by the conservancies and called for the scrapping of the wildlife sanctuaries.
They pointed fingers at the Northern Rangelands Trust (NRT), an organisation that facilitates the running of community conservancies.
