The Kenyatta family has recovered some of the sheep that was stolen when an identified gang invaded Northlands farm in Ruiru.
The security manager, Patrick Masinde, on Thursday, April 13, revealed that they had recovered 18 Dorper sheep stolen from the property.
According to Masinde, the goons used cars to drop off the sheep near the farm’s fence along the Eastern Bypass.
“So far we are optimistic with the process, since we have recovered 18.”
He said the recovered sheep are emaciated due to poor husbandry
“since these are not traditional breeds that feed anyhow. We urge all holding our stock to return them peacefully.”
To avoid arrests and detection, those who returned the sheep reportedly sped off immediately after the drop-off.
Five of the sheep were on Wednesday night found abandoned at Dandora police station, where enquiries led to security managers at the farm identifying them through special marks on the animals, before they were returned to the farm.
During the March 27 raid, 1400 sheep were stolen, and the goons cut down an unknown number of trees.
The stolen sheep were estimated to be worth Ksh70 million, given that one exotic sheep goes for approximately Ksh50,000.
