Aberdares Forest
Boro village

Vet on Call: Do you know your farm worker?

I was impressed the other day by the assistant chief at a function I attended in Boro village next to the Aberdares Forest in Murang’a when she said that Kenyans from any part of the country are free to be employed on the farms in her area of jurisdiction.

As I wrote the invoice, I spelt the man’s name as “Farouk” from his pronunciation and his face lit up as he commented, “You’re one of the few people who has spelt my name correctly the first time they hear it.”

I could identify with all those details from my records. As I closed the files, I mentally heard the voice of my public safety and security trainer in Iraq emphasising, “Terrorists know the best way to conceal yourself is to hide in plain sight.”
