By Nathan Etengu OFFICIALS from Kotido district and Turkana district in Kenya are scheduled to meet in the first week of November to lay down strategies governing cross-border grazing by pastoralists during the forth coming dry season. The meeting will be held in Lodwar, north western Kenya. The officials from the two districts came up with the resolution during separate meetings held in Kisumu where they attended a border district commissioners’ meeting. The Kotido LC5 chairman, Mr. Gabriel Lotiang, told The New Vision that they wanted to meet the Turkana leaders to inform them of the acts of lawlessness committed by their people whenever they crossed to graze inside Karamoja. He also said whereas some Turkana were friendly to the Jie community in Kotido district, another section of the Turkana have been raiding cattle from the neighbouring Dodoth community.
