Nominated MP Sarah Lekorere

Laikipia North constituency MP Sarah Lekorere yesterday said more than 10
people have been killed by elephants in  the last three months.

Laikipia KWS Senior Warden Richard Chepkwony admitted that elephant attacks
have been on the rise in the past few months, but disputed the figure.

Chepkwony said prevailing drought has forced the animals to be more
aggressive and have occasioned some deaths.

Lekorere is now calling on KWS to put measures in place to control the
wildlife invasion in villages that has also resulted in destruction of
crops in the community.
