Kenya to Drill for Oil in Samburu Territory

Since February there have been ongoing government assaults on the Samburu people and allied tribes by the Kenyan government, with many people killed and almost all Samburu cattle confiscated. The government claims that the operations were in response to several cattle rustling incidents immediately before the assaults, but papers provided by a military informant indicate that the attacks had been planned by the government for more than a year in advance and had the purpose of driving the Samburu out of their territories. Now a report in Kenya's Daily Nation newspaper suggests a possible underlying motivation.
