Sengwer Indigenous People

Kenya

Violently evicted from their ancestral land

The Sengwer people in Kenya have lived in Embohut Forest for centuries. In the name of “conservation”, forest guards and police have burned over 2,600 houses since 2012, making 4,600 people homeless. In January 2018, one man was shot dead. The violence is in direct violation of repeated court orders that should protect this indigenous community. Women are often hit hardest, struggling on their own to care for families, as some men have abandoned their families.

ACT NOW

  • Tell Kenya: to let the Sengwer people live on their land in peace.
  • Tell the Kenyan president to stop the house burnings and arrest, and remove all restriction so that the Sengwer people can live in peace on their ancestral land in the Embobut Forest.

Actions will be sent to:

President of Kenya
Uhuru Kenyatta
Harambee House
PO Box 62345
00200 Nairobi, Harambee Avenue, Nairobi,
