Hii Boni forest sOhio iwekwe landmines
Hawa watu wanajibamba huko sana

What we need is a military operation, like the one that was conducted in Mr. Elgon.

hii boni inakaa ni kubwa sana

Laikipia inakuwa noma @Chifu roger that

I think Mt. Elgon was more complex, guess than Boni.

Laikipia jist happened in an election year, let them guys invade those Ranches come January

There’s something really wrong with our intellience system. How do more than 30 men move around with guns, even in a forest, without security forces getting intel from locals?

Good question. I saw Marwa asking the same question. Sometimes, they( Shaba) are not interested in civilians. They just want security forces so that they can kill and get weapons and medication. So they go from village to village walking past pedestrians and nobody ever reports.

Guka wacha kuongea kama keyboard warrior. Have you been to a serious forest kwanza? Most of Kenyans would absolutely shut up when they get to the outskirts of boni forest, let alone inside it. The insects zenye ziko huko! Aerial surveillance is impossible even with thermal imaging coz of the undergrowth. I’ve seen a post up here ati Mt. Elgon was more complex nikacheka tu.
