Shortly after a closed door meeting, President of the Pene Da Bwatiye, Prof. Dan Babayi disclosed that the meeting centered on discussions to further consolidate on the relative peace being experienced currently in the state
He said cases of farmers and herder’s crisis that had claimed lives in the pass still resurface in some quotas of the state and expressed the hope that measures discussed at the meeting would yield positive results
He explained that most of such cases happen during the rainy and harvest seasons that’s why the Bwatiye leadership find it necessary to begin the anti- farmer and herders crisis advocacy early through the meeting
Prof. Babayi said that the lingering compensation of Bwatiye communities that lost their fortunes in similar crisis was also discussed and that the state government promised to look into it.
