Herders in Kajiado are worried after hazardous weed invaded their land affecting thousands of acres

Herders in Kajiado county are worried following a hazardous weed that has invaded their land affecting thousands of acres. According to Timothy Korres, a resident, the evergreen weed known as Ipomoea is believed by the herders to have come as a curse since it colonizes and dominates their pasture. Thousands of herders in the county are now worried about insufficient pasture as a result of the weed. According to the NEMA Kajiado officer Joseph Kopedo the only solution to the weed is to uproot it. Ipomoea spreads very quickly and cannot be eaten by livestock and neither can grass grow under it or in its surroundings
