Witnesses have told me that they saw 120 of their camels being killed by Kenyan police officers on Saturday.
Local MP Ali Wario was one of those who saw the killings in a village in the Tana River area of Kenya’s coastal region.
There has been an ongoing dispute in the area over accusations that pastoralists have been grazing their animals on other people’s land.
One of the villagers told me that it was very unfortunate that policemen who are supposed to protect them are now killing the animals.
The police have not responded to the BBC’s request for comment.
