Laikipia – how much ranchers and conservancies help the local economy

Post originally posted on

Laikipia ranchers and conservancies are the main contributors to Laikipia’s economy — we provide more jobs, we pay more taxes, we buy more goods and we support more education and health projects than anybody else in the County. A cross section of just 32 properties in Laikipia contributes nearly FOUR BILLION Kenya Shillings to the local economy annually — benefiting many thousands.

By contrast, the militias invading Laikipia pay no taxes, employ nobody, and give zero to education or health. Their political godfathers and the cattle barons driving the invasions contribute nothing to the economy. They only destroy it.
