What you need to know:

  • A few years ago, Harji Mavji and Suresh Kurji Kerai, who own KiliAvo Fresh Limited, a horticultural venture, bought 180 acres of land in Ole Polos in Kimana, five kilometres from the Amboseli National Park. 
  • Records seen by the Sunday Nation indicate that KiliAvo legally acquired the piece of land from locals.

Red open earth, boulders and six-feet-tall timber posts on the perimeter of a 150-acre piece of land in the Kimana Community Conservancy appear out of place, even from the murram road towards Amboseli National Park.  A family of gazelles and giraffes caught up in the melee still mill around the piece of land, now ploughed, that used to be their home.
