The authorities reacted very strongly to the peaceful demonstrations and tried to prevent them from taking place. Local NGOs were accused of being behind the demonstrations and several NGO people were arrested including staff of NGONET and Oxfam. The plight of the Maasai in Loliondo remains a serious cause of concern and the following articles and press releases provide more details on the situation.
