Today, Mandera County’s Department of Livestock in collaboration with BORESHA launched Rift Valley Fever vaccination program at the Livestock offices in Mandera town. This is after the metrological department gave notification that Mandera County will in the coming days receive above normal rainfall which may led to the outbreak of Rift Valley fever in the county.

The team led by Senior Assistant Director of Veterinary Services DR. Claudio Sortum and Danish Refugee Council (DRC) Livelihood Manager Mr. Ali Issack confirmed the availability of over 100,000 dose of vaccines which will be dispensed in 3 sub-counties of Mandera East, North and Banissa.

The exercise which is targeting sheep and goats will continue for a period of 3 weeks across the 3 sub-counties.

Earlier today H.E Governor Ali Roba issued a press statement on the ongoing two-months-long ban by the County security team on quarry activities in Mandera County. Up until now, the locals were implored to persevere the ban with the hope that it shall be lifted soon. However, it’s now two months and the County security team has not lifted the ban despite the adverse economic implications this has on the local economy.

A Lorry of quarry stones now costs KES 33,000, up from its initial price of 20,000. Even with this exorbitant price, supply is dwindling fast. This has led to cessation of construction projects in the county, leading to unnecessary loss of business by hardware shops, transporters and masons. This is due to an unreasonable and illegal ban on quarry activities in the county.

There has been terror incidents before before and it did not prompt closure of quarry sites. The Governor terms the current ban ill advised and intolerable.

Because of the mass complaints by the public, H.E Governor Ali Roba directed the local community members to resume quarry activities effective tomorrow 5th, July 2018 urging the county security team to enforce the discriminatory ban on non local quarry workers if they choose so.

“We cannot curtail the development of this county by issuing directives that are not pragmatic. If there is an attack on quarry, we cannot close quarry. If there is an attack on teachers, we cannot close schools. We should be resilient in the face of terrorism. We cannot give in” exclaimed Governor Ali Roba

He further added that it’s the responsibility of the county security committee to provide security to the public. “We can’t stop living because there are terror threats. Many attempts have been made on my life and I have not stopped living and I can’t run away. Quarry activities must be resumed” he concluded
