Kenya: Rights Groups Rile Maasai Elite

MAASAI Professionals have accused human rights organisations of trying to block nine aspirants who are seeking various elective seats in Narok county.

"We are concerned about this matter. We don't support the idea at all. We want everybody to exercise their constitutional rights," said Joseph ole Sonkori, the Association of Maasai Professionals chairman.

Sonkori was addressing the press in Narok town yesterday. He accused some of the aspirants of colluding with the civil society to block their rivals.
