According to the New Vision, on September 21, 2019, a group of 15 armed men led by one Wilberforce Muhangi who was sent by Justice and Constitutional Affairs Minister Kahinda Otafiire raided the facility yet again, destroyed government machinery, equipment, veterinary workshop, lab, and residential structures.

Njeru stock farm is said to have existed since 1949, having been established to serve as a training center, demonstration farm, breeding center, research center and also had the Njeru veterinary workshop.

The Njeru veterinary workshop site that was destroyed seats on 5.02 hectares and has since been fenced off using iron sheets. The group later packed all the items they had destroyed aboard trucks and took them away from the farm.

The newspaper report indicates that Gen Otafiire contacted a Construction company–Global International Alliance to go and secure his land.

“His lawyers hired my company and in this particular project we were to clear the land,” said a one Muhangi.

He reportedly denied claims that they ferried away destroyed material from the site.
