Sarima Indigenous Peoples’ Land Forum

Defending Our Community Land from Colonial Takeover by Lake Turkana Wind Power Ltd.

About Us

The Sarima Indigenous Peoples’ Land Forum is formed by El Molo, Rendille, Samburu, Turkana and other indigenous and pastoralist communities in the South-East of Marsabit County, Northern Kenya. We have come together to defend 150,000 acres of our ancestral community land from illegal privatization by a European consortium known as Lake Turkana Wind Power Ltd (LTWP). We do not oppose the generation of wind energy in our region, but will not allow the theft of our community land.
