NAROK senator aspirant Andrew ole Sunkuli has appealed to the government to address human-wildlife conflicts in the county.
"It is sad for the people of Narok to suffer attacks from the wild animals. The locals have lost crops, livestock, property and lives in attacks by animal," he said.
Sunkuli said the conflicts are a serious threat to residents and the state should intervene to avert further losses. He was speaking yesterday at Ewaso Nyiro in Narok South.
The area is prone to human-wildlife conflicts. Sunkuli said it is the government's mandate to ensure every citizen is protected from marauding wild animals.
"Unless the government moves fast to address the situation, the people residing around Maasai Mara Game Reserve will continue to suffer from animal attacks," he said.
