A brief about Richard Turere
Richard Turere is the young man who invented the lion proof ‘boma’ lights also referred to as Turere LED lights which are an automated lighting system of lights flashing intermittently that deters large predators – lions, leopards and cheetahs from invading livestock sheds in Kenya. He invented the lights when he was only 12 year-old and the lights have been successfully replicated in many other bomas/homestead in Kitengela, Laikipia and Machakos and no predator attacks reported in the homesteads with the lion lights!
