400 guns in civilian hands in Laikipia North to be registered

23 August 2016, 09:29 Joseph Njung'eh

Laikipia - The government has expressed concern that more than 400 guns are in civilian hands in Laikipia North constituency.

Area deputy County Commissioner, Thomas Siele however urged the residents to register the firearms, promising not to disarm them.

Speaking at a security meeting at Il Polei, the administrator explained that the registration exercise is aimed at controlling crime including cattle rustling and poaching.

Siele dismissed reports that cattle rustling in the area was being carried out by herders from neighbouring counties of Isiolo and Samburu, stating that there were locals engaging in the crime.

He said that over 100 names of people who are expected to be deployed as Kenya Police Reservists (KPR) in the area have been forwarded to Interior Ministry for consideration.

Mukogodo West MCA Paul Lembeneiyo and his counterpart from Il Ngwesi Ward Paul Leshuel complained of escalating insecurity in their areas.

Leshuel called on the government to quell rampant livestock theft saying residents have been spending sleepless nights guarding their animals.

However, Siele noted that registration of firearms will help the government beef up security and track criminals.
