THIS coming month of April marks a year and a half since the ruling that culminated in the ruthless forced removal of Tanzania’s Maasai communities from their ancestral land.

The ruling, enacted by the East African Court of Justice (EACJ), was made in favour of the Tanzanian state. This was following a five-year long legal battle, calling for the use of the Maasai ancestral land to be leased and developed into game lodges and trophy-hunting sites for the tourism industry.
