, Index number: AFR 32/7868/2018

The Sengwer Indigenous community are facing new threats of eviction. On 21 January, a local government official announced intensified security operations to “flush out” everyone from the forest, who, he alleges, are “all criminals and cattle-rustlers”. Sengwer community member Robert Kirotich Kibor was shot at and killed and David Kosgei Kiptilkesi was seriously injured by gunshots during an eviction on 16 January.
