MP says stop army training Baringo East

17 April 2012, 15:36 Steve Wambugu

The Baringo East Member of Parliament Asman Kamama wants the Kenya Army to stop training of their personnel in his constituency saying it was doing more harm to the residents.
Kamama who is an assistant Minister for Higher Education claimed that residents were not comfortable with the army training undertaken at Nginya’ng and Loruk in his constituency.
He said residents who have lost animals because of explosives left unattended should be compensated and the environmental degradation addressed.
Kamama said he would lead over 500 villagers affected to lodge protest to the Minister for Defence
He said the explosives left behind had contributed to suffering of the re4sidents when they explode and cited the recent case where a 9 year old boy was wounded after he came in conduct with a bomb which had been left behind.
The boy who is currently admitted at the Kabarnet District Hospital is due to under an operation to amputate his hands.
“ Its such reckeleness from the Army personnel  that we are demanding that they6 cease to undertake any further training for the sake of the safety of the people” he told the press in Nakuru.
He pointed out that the training has been going for the last forty years and that the residents have not benefited from the exercise.
He pointed out that the rising population was also not conducive for such activities to be undertaken and it should be held elsewhere in such places as Suguta Murmur or in North Eastern where the population is still low.
The MP added that such training requires a rough terrain and not in villages amongst the people whose routine activities are disrupted.
