H.E the governor when he officially opened the fence project in Kajiado Central sub-county


Oloililai 2 is a Kajiado based Maasai cooperative society. It is a marketing cooperative society owned by dairy farmers from Kajiado central sub-county. Maasai dairy was started as a self-help group registered as Kajiado women project in February 2005.It involved collection, transportation, chilling and marketing of milk to processers. The women association from Oloililai 2 in Maili Tisa in Matapato south could not hide their joy as part of their 2.5 hectares for their dairy was fenced by the county government. The dairy piece of land is occupied by an animal bore hole and Maili Tisa slaughter since it was not fenced hence animals used to roam around and the women felt the need to fence up the area to improve up security

The chair lady of the dairy Mrs. Sayetua lamented “We want to thank the governor and his team for fencing this part of our land. We will be able to sell our milk without problems. We will also be able to do tree planting.” Sayetua used the platform to request for a cooler from the leaders present as one of things that will boost and add value on milk to diversify other products. She appealed to the governor for a title deed that will give them right to own the piece of land.

The dairy receives milk from the pastoralist from the locality of mailwa, Namanga, Ngatataek among others.

During the tour Kajiado Governor Dr. David Nkedianye said his government was determined to boost the milk business and empower the Maasai woman. He also appealed to local pastoralists to keep a considerable number of livestock they can manage to avoid incurring losses during dry spells.

H.E the Governor urged the women society to embrace modern technology to benefit from the ready market. He further warned the teams present to keep off from land selling as it constitutes to poverty in the society.
