Their motto “Amani milele, milele amani rang out as echoes cascaded up and down the escarpments of the North Rift from every market and village square they stopped at. The message was the same. Mothers play your roles to help get rid of guns from the community to stop the unnecessary violence that has killed so many young men and husbands leaving mounds of graves it its wake.

They started in Sigor, Misol, Lomut, Chesokon and finished at Sambalat at well after 9pm, where Madam CAS graciously offered dinner to the whole team of 90±.

The challenges came fast and furious due to the poor, untarmacked, meandering roads tipping in and out of the numerous rivers both permanentl and seasonal. The articulated public address lorry acting as the center piece of the peace caravan had the worst of it.

This afternoon CS Peter Munya addressed the representatives of the donkey owning communities, drawn from across the country who sought for the ban on the slaughtering and export of donkey skin and associated products from Kenya.

This afternoon CS Peter Munya addressed the representatives of the donkey owning communities, drawn from across the country who sought for the ban on the slaughtering and export of donkey skin and associated products from Kenya.

Slaughter of donkeys and trade in related donkey products has promoted vices like stealing of donkeys, wanton and unmitigated slaughter of donkeys, which has led to drastic reduction in the donkey population. This has, consequently, impacted negatively on the economic welfare and the livelihoods of the families of those who rely on donkeys for transport and as a means of facilitating trade.

In his remarks CS Munya noted that If this trend continues the donkeys will be decimated and the economy will be affected in a huge way. He affirmed that the Government has therefore decided to stop the slaughter and the trade in donkey associated products.
