Video: The Sengwer home

For the Sengwer, this is their home. Their very attachment to their lands here in Embobut forest and glades is why they remain, despite all the harassment and burning of their homes by Kenya Forest Service (KFS) over many years. Should that harassment be successful, it will leave their lands at the mercy of those who have no long-term care or commitment to their ancestral lands, and leave the Sengwer themselves destitute and deprived of their human rights.
