•News of the slain lions by morans in Imbirrikani on the night of Friday and Saturday morning on Sunday morning forced the Tourism, Wildlife and Cultural Heritage Cabinet Secretary, Peninah Malonza to travel to the scene.
•Kajiado County Kenya Wildlife Service boss, Daniel Kosgey, told the Star on Sunday morning his boss is touring Imbirrikani after the killing of the six lions.
The CS Tourism Peninah Malonza is expected at Imbirrikani in Kajiado after Morans killed six out of 8 lions that invaded a manyatta on Saturday morning.
Kajiado County Kenya Wildlife Service boss, Daniel Kosgey, told the Star on Sunday morning, that the CS will visit the scene.
“I am on my way right now to Imbirrikani and we are expecting the CS to be around too. This is a serious incident, indeed,” he said.
Kosgey said the lions were eight and the morans managed to kill 6 of them.
Irate Maasai morans killed six lions in Kajiado south sub-county on Saturday morning in Nashipa village after the cats allegedly invaded their livestock.
The lions, suspected to have crossed over from the Amboseli National Park, are said to have invaded the village on Friday night and killed 11 sheep and a dog.
An eyewitness and a neighbour of the homeowner told the Star that attempts to scare the lions bore no fruits.
After the lions caused resistance, even after killing 11 goats, the morans sent out a message and more than 100 young morans arrived on time and overran the lions.
Kosgey said such invasions are common in the Amboseli ecosystem during drought and after the rains, because the cats are still weak to hunt.
He said the lions were killed in the Imbirrikani ranch and he was going to make a follow-up.
The morans killed the six lions in minutes but could not find two others that had hidden in the darkness.
