Some of the sheep that were stolen from Northlands last month have been recovered, with police sources indicating that so far 18 sheep were returned, some with people believed to be aides of two prominent Nairobi politicians.
According to reports, five of the sheep were on Wednesday night found abandoned at Dandora police station before they were returned to the farm.
Northlands Farm’s security manager, Mr. Patrick Masinde confirmed the return of the animals.
“So far we are optimistic about the process since we have recovered 18. The covered sheep are emaciated due to poor husbandry since these are not traditional breeds that feed anyhow. We urge all holding our stock to return them peacefully,” he said.
On April 3, elderly women who claimed to have been Mau Mau fighters, while in the Kenyatta family’s Ichaweri village, allegedly uttered a public curse on the raiders promising them “untoward suffering”.
Last month, unknown youths stormed the Northlands Estate in Ruiru destroying property and also made away sheep among other things. The invasion was organized by goons affiliated with UDA politicians opposed to protests against the government.
