Kenya Wildlife Service distances rangers from kidnappings

02 December 2014, 23:00

Nakuru - The Kenya wildlife service has distanced its rangers in Nakuru from recent cases of kidnap in parts of Njoro and Gilgil.

Assistant director in charge of Central Rift Conservation area George Osuri,said that the service insists that people masquerading as kws rangers could be behind the heinous acts.

Mr Osuri said that kws has not made any arrests in Bagaria and Elementaita in the last two weeks when two men are said to have been kidnapped by four people dressed in kws rangers uniforms.

He added  that as clearly stipulated in the kws mandate, those arrested for committing various crimes have always been handed to the relevant authorities for action.

He noted that the service has received complains from the concerned families and was already acting on the information provided.

The officer said that he cannot rule out possibility of rogue people pretending to be  kws rangers.

Osuri’s statement follows the disappearance of Mr Kuria Muiruri and Mr Karanja Gitiiha after they were picked by suspected kws rangers in Bagaria Njoro and Jogoo village- Elementaita respectively.

The two are yet to be found two weeks after they disappeared.
