My friend David Kinyua who is a teacher in Nooloroi Oldonyiro, Isiolo county just discovered landmine in school compound. They have contacted security personnels to detonate.
Some boys when herding, they find them and start playing with them which end in disaster.
@Aurochs there are several cases of people dying and others are permanently maimed especially young boys herding cattle.
@Aurochs this is one example which happened last year in different county that border Isiolo, Laikipia.

we have constant wars between pastoralist communities but don't involves explosives but guns, bow and arrows.
Yes, definetely. Back then, as a kid, they showed me pictures of several explosive devices, to tell, never to touch such stuff.
Near the the house, I live now, there is a 'Marterl' (memorial for people killed by violence or accident), that is set for a man who died in 1947, in a not descriped accident with a 'Panzerfaust' (anti-tank missile).
Sometimes they find abandoned old hand grenades and ammo, too. Especially in the lakes.
