Cheetahs and elephants on Saturday invaded Imorotoki location in Kajiado county in a fresh human-wildlife conflict. Chief Issack Paswa said many school children are not going to school as elephants, in search of water, are roaming freely in the area.

He said the elephants have destroyed community water tanks and wells. A survey revealed that more than a half of students at Imotoroki and Olchoibor primary schools have abandoned classes. Most of them walk between 20km to 30km every day to school.
