26 November 2014, 10:48
Vihiga - Sabatia MP, Alfred Agoi has asked the government to beef up security in the country even as he mourned three people from his constituency who perished in the recent attacks in Mandera and Garissa.
Douglas Ligazo from Lusala village and Hillary Jumba from Chavakali were among those killed in the ill fated bus during the Mandera attack, whereas Evanston Mutunga died in the another attack at Garissa.
“I’m saddened by the attack on my constituents and other innocent Kenyans who perished in the bus that was attacked by the terrorists. The killings in the country are uncalled for and I condemn them by all means,” said Agoi.
Agoi called for stern action to be taken against terrorists by all arms of the government so that victimization of innocent people can also stop.
Agoi said that terrorism is uncalled for in the country right now bearing in mind that the country has some of the best trained officers in the region.

“The government should now work towards ensuring that all Kenyans are protected from terrorists, because we cannot go on losing innocent people to attacks by terror gangs,” he said.
He noted that security of Kenyans should be placed paramount to anything else in the country right now to bestow the trust of Kenyans in their security forces.
“Let us invest in protecting our people whom we serve first before we do any other thing. That way, people will be assured of their safety and thus work without fear,” said Agoi.
The MP said that he will foot the bills incurred in transporting the deceased to Sabatia and was organising for a mass funeral service for them.
