MP defends military deployment in Kapedo

11 November 2014, 22:55 Joseph Njung’eh

Kapedo - Tetu MP Ndungu Gethenji has defended deployment of Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) in Kapedo area to deal with suspected cattle rustlers who recently killed more than 20 police officers.

Gethenji said the military would remain in Kapedo until the armed cattle rustlers were apprehended or eliminated.

“Cattle rustling was not allowed in our country and those people who think that they could continue destabilizing the peace of this country by stealing other people’s cattle would be dealt with in accordance with the law,” said the MP.

Gethenji who is also the chairman of parliamentary committee on defence and foreign affairs complained that the pace in which the firearms were being returned was very slow.

He blamed the elected leaders in the area whom he accused of not cooperating with the government.

Speaking at Kiandu area in his constituency Gethenji said the government would ensure all firearms and police uniforms that were stolen from the slain police officers were returned.

He asserted that instead of the elected leaders supporting the government in the operation of recovering the weapons, they were alleging that their communities were being harassed by the government.

“Peace must be maintained in every part of the county regardless of the culture of any community in our society. Leaders should cooperate with the government to ensure peace was restored in the affected areas,” said Gethenji.
