He said, “Anyone who is against the ban on open grazing is saying the killings in the country should continue.

“There are no grazing routes in the south that would enable cattle to move freely without trespassing, and encouraging open grazing is synonymous with enabling armed foreign herders to perpetrate killings in the country.”
