HC Deb 26 November 1930 vol 245 c1303

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Samburu tribe in Kenya Colony is still occupying their lands; and for what purpose was the survey for farms recently carried out in the Loroki Hills?


Yes, Sir. The Samburu are still in occupation of the area to which they were given provisional access. The question of making other arrangements for the tribe is still under the consideration of the Kenya Government, and no definite recommendation has yet been submitted. If a survey has recently been made of the nature stated by my hon. Friend on the Loroki plateau, it can be be provisional only, as no new arrangement for land for the Samburu could be made without reference to my Noble Friend the Secretary of State for the Colonies.
