The High Court has asked the government to stop killing livestock and destruction of property in Laikipia County.

Justice John Mativo issued the order in a case filed by former Laikipia North MP Matthew Lempurkel and current county Speaker Lenas Loshore.

“I find and hold that it would be consistent with the Constitution to grant the orders as requested,” ruled Justice Mativo.

“The fundamental duty of the Constitution is to uphold the law and I find it deserving to grant the interim orders.”
