Governor: Disarm illegal arm holders

12 April 2013, 15:24 Kelvin Wanjohi

Laikipia County has been experiencing increased attacks by armed cattle raiders, the recent one being an incident where two people were shot dead by a group of over 20 armed raiders in Mwenje, Nyahururu district.

Addressing the issue, Laikipia governor Joshua Irungu has directed the concerned authorities to step in and ensure that security is beefed up in the county.

"I recommend the security committee in Laikipia County led by County commissioner Wycliffe Ogallo to define a permanent and lasting solution to curb the raiding activities," said Irungu.

"I will seek to have a meeting with the stakeholders in the county to bring all the affected areas administrators on board," he added.

Residents are being confined indoors as early as dusk because they are afraid of retaliatory attacks.

Earlier, Nyahururu DC Lucy Mulili had said that police officers including GSU and police reservists will be deployed in the area.

The administrators also seek to disarm people with illegal firearms which are used in the attacks.
