R.V council of elders on Baringo attacks

28 October 2014, 22:59 Chepkwony Robert

Baringo - Following spate of attacks pitting two pastoral communities in Baringo County that led to deaths of locals and three General Service Unit (GSU) officers, the Rift Council of elders has called for speedy disarmament of the locals.

Through its spokesman Gilbert Kabage, the council, though echoing Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo’s order on ‘shoot to kill’ the cattle rustlers spearheading the killings, says disarmament should be given top priority.

“Much as IG David Kimaiyo issued a soot to kill order against the culprits, that one alone is not enough. Why can’t the government carry out a major disarmament exercise?” asks Kabage.

He called on the government to use its machinery including the military to carry out disarmament just like what was done in past among the Samburu community.

The council of elders says such incidences of insecurity are a threat to the devolved government’s structure that is trying to take shape.

On the same, Kabage, just like Baringo County senator Gideon Moi attributed the current wave of conflicts especially among the pastoral communities to county boundaries issues.

“We know very well that current boundaries created top pave way for the devolved governments structures was done in a hurry without considering that local communities’’ stake in the decision making,” added Kabage, who called on the Internal Security CS Joseph Lenku in collaboration with IG of Police David Kimaiyo to engage the two warring communities in a bid to resolve some of the pertinent issues.

In his statement recently in Koibatek of Baringo County, senator Gideon Moi urged the government to speed up resolving of disputed boundaries pitting Baringo and parts of neighbouring counties such as Turkana and Pokot.
