Josphine Ekiru. Peace Coordinato

Josphine is a Turkana who almost single handedly brought about peace in her once-troubled home conservancy of Nakuprat-Gotu. Despite death threats and a struggle to be taken seriously by male elders, Josphine used dialogue and unwavering patience to bring two warring communities together, and form a conservancy. She flushed out former poachers, many of whom are now rangers, and went on to become one of NRT's first conservancy chairladies. She became peace coordinator in 2014.
