Gallmann, known for her bestselling book 'I Dreamed of Africa,' which became a movie by the same name starring Kim Basinger (pictured, right) , was patrolling the ranch when she was shot in the stomach Richard Constant, the deputy chairman of the Laikipia Farmers Association, said suspicion falls on herders from the Pokot community who have invaded Gallmann's ranch several times.
Herders and large-scale farmers in parts of Kenya's Rift Valley have been desperately waiting for seasonal rains that were to start last month to ease the drought and conflicts over grazing land in which more than 30 people have died.
Early one Sunday in late April, Gallmann visited Mukutan Retreat, her tourist lodge and the scene of the most recent arson.
The last of three cottages - stone-walled, cedar-floored with thatched papyrus roofs - had been set alight the day before.
