Land Rights Now: Plant a tree for the Resguardo

“We must restore the forests and protect the water basins so that the spirit of the water is back with us.

Hector Jaime Vinasco ex-Governor of the Resguardo and coordinator of the program

 

Violence escalates against the Sengwer of Embobut Forest, Kenya

Shortly after a visit from an EU delegation last week, Kenya Forest Service (KFS) guards based at Tangul, Kipsitono and Maron KFS camps carried out intensive evictions according to Sengwer witnesses, with KFS allegedly having since burnt down over 90 Sengwer homes and destroyed their property.
