Today Madam CAS, Livestock and Fisheries, Linah Jebii Kilimo, had an extremely busy schedule as she continued with her peace mission accompanied by members of the POTUMA Pokot, Turkana and Marakwet women peace forum.
Their motto Amani milele, milele amani rang out as echoes cascaded up and down the escarpments of the North Rift from every market and village square they stopped at. The message was the same. Mothers play your roles to help get rid of guns from the community to stop the unnecessary violence that has killed so many young men and husbands leaving mounds of graves it its wake.
They started in Sigor, Misol, Lomut, Chesokon and finished at Sambalat at well after 9pm, where Madam CAS graciously offered dinner to the whole team of 90.
The challenges came fast and furious due to the poor, untarmacked, meandering roads tipping in and out of the numerous rivers both permanentl and seasonal. The articulated public address lorry acting as the center piece of the peace caravan had the worst of it.
