Context and Genesis
The Context of Constraints
Two thirds of Kenya is arid. This massive land surface hosts more than half or our livestock
and 25% of the population almost all are pastoralists. Livestock represents our pastoralists
economic and social position. Increasing pastoralist populations means increased livestock to
sustain their livelihood. But this will not be possible without irreversible degradation of
natural resources. Therefore there is urgent need for our pastoralists to commercialize their
herds for better financial returns and livelihood. However, improved stocks will not bring
desired economic benefits if marketing of livestock and their products is not improved. Prior
to 1983 livestock marketing division (LMD) of Ministry of Agriculture and Kenya Meat
Commission (KMC) were main buyers of our livestock. With the liberated agricultural
economy these government owned institutions have ceased operation. Today livestock trade
and processing is wholly in the hands of private traders and informal sector micro-enterprise.
Unfortunately this change though positive has disorganized our livestock industry with
consequent decline in operation capacity, quality standards and unfair trade practices.
Consequently our pastoralists have been made poorer due to low prices and unfair trading.
These negative impacts have completely depressed all positive development of meat industry
in Kenya. However, not with standing these negative impacts the responsibility of restoring
orderliness and organized livestock, trade and meat industry rests wholly with stakeholders
including pastoralists.
