Members from Maasai community in Naivasha have expressed concern over the increase of poaching. They said poaching takes place near their homes and blamed the outsiders for the vice. Their sentiments comes barely a week after a rhino was killed and its horns hacked off.
Andrew ole Koisamou from Imarisha Naivasha Board said they will work with ranch owners bordering them and Kenya Wildlife Serving to fight poaching.
"We have seen a shift of poaching from national parks to conservancies and its time the community was involved in protecting the wildlife," said. He was addressing the press in Naivasha yesterday.
Koisamou said the country is losing millions of shillings through poaching and is affecting the tourism sector.Security officers held a crisis meeting at the Oserian Conservancy after the killing which brought to four the number of rhinos killed in the last three months.
