W'e observe that the laws governing in NRV discriminate the region. Among them are special powers delegated to the Provincial administrators by ''Chiefs Authority Act"134. They can restrict movement of people from one district to another and control direct sale of livestock1''. This embeds official physical and structural violence in state policies. The laws aiso include the "Special Districts Administration Act"'36 and "Outlying Districts Act'-'37, which delegate political and economic control to District Commissioners and gave them excessive powers to restrict peoples' movement and confine them to their areas if need be . Acts such as the "Agricultural Act" and the "Agricultural Produce Marketing Act" continue to restrict markets'39. The most contentious is the "Stock and Produce Theft Act" which imposes a fine or conviction for theft of stock or produce'60. It legalised collective punishment when offenders escape and cites community representatives as the offender. Magistrates can impose fines of at least ten times the value of stolen stocks or produce, often too hefty for the culprit to afford, so the punishment is extended to his closest family, clan or his community 6'.1 6 0 1 6 1 ■4 Cap 12 8 .
