Last months, invaders attacked ex-president Uhuru Kenyatta’s Northlands farm at Kamakis on the Eastern Bypass in Kiambu County.
The hundreds of hired hooligans arrived at the farm in Lorries, armed with power saws and machetes in what appeared that an attack well-coordinated.
During the raid, it was reported that more than 1,400 sheep were stolen as raiders torched part of the 51,000 acres of land.
However, the Daily Nation on Friday, April 14, reported that some of the sheep that were stolen during the raid have been returned.
The daily reported that as of Thursday, April 13, 18 sheep had been returned to former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s vast land.
For instance, on the night of Wednesday, April 12, five sheep were found abandoned at Dandora police station, where inquiries led to security managers at the farm identifying them through special marks on the animals before they were returned to the farm.
The farm’s security manager Patrick Masinde confirmed the return of the animals.
“So far we are optimistic with the process since we have recovered 18 sheep,” he said.
He however lamented that those recovered were emaciated and urged those still in possession of the animals to return them.
“We urge all holding our stock to return them peacefully since these are not traditional breeds that feed anyhow,” Masinde said.
It was further reported that some people believed to be the aids of two Nairobi politicians in cars were seen dropping the animals near the farm.
The return happens less than two weeks after an elderly woman who claimed to have been a Mau Mau fighter allegedly uttered a public curse on the raiders promising them ‘untoward suffering”.
The woman who hails from Uhuru’s village in Ichaweri advised those who took the animals away to voluntarily return them at an individual level and further seek cleansing to ward off the curse.
