Hopes of Bumper Harvest Wane Near Elephant Corridor
Story by CHARLES WANYORO
Residents of the larger Meru Central region, many of them farmers, live under fear of elephants.
While the beasts pose a general security threat to all locals, the farmers have been affected more since the animals have been feasting and trampling on acres of crops just before harvest.
The lush green farms in Ruiri Division of Imenti North District suggest bumper harvest this season but the presence of destructive elephants dictate otherwise.
The farmers have for a long time been grappling over marauding elephants from the neighbouring lower Imenti forest every time crops are nearing maturity.
