Suspected Pokot raiders steal over a thousand heads of cattle

04 December 2014, 20:54 Robert Chepkwony

Baringo - More than 1000 heads of cattle have been stolen following a daring attack at Arabal area in Baringo South by suspected Pokot raiders.

The Wednesday afternoon incident has left residents in shock especially considering that the Kenya Defence Forces were recently deployed to the neighbouring Tiaty district where a security operation is ongoing.

According to witnesses, the bandits shot in the air severally as herders run for dear life. It was then that they goaded the animals towards Paka hills in Tiaty.

Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Executive Secretary Charles Kamuren asked the government to beef up security in the area and ensure that all the animals stolen are recovered.

“We don’t know what the KDF is doing in Baringo because Pokot raiders have continued attacking and stealing animals even in daylight as if there’s no government,” he said.

The member of the county assembly from mukutani ward Renson Parkei said that there were no any casualties as there was an exchange of fire between the rustlers and the residents. “We are at ease because no one was injured during the shoot out,” said the MCA.

He added that the rustlers and the bandits have moved in mass to their area avoiding the operation taking place at Kapedo.

“We are really worried as the rustlers and the bandings have moved to our land and they have started by stealing from us and we have no idea of their next more,” said Parkei.

The MCA also urged the government to flush out the bandits who are occupying their land saying that they were a security risk. “We are very worried because these guys are always attacking us with impunity,” he said.

“The operation in Kapedo will not assist but see innocent people affected because the real bandits have used different tricks and moved to different hiding places,” added Parkei.

This comes even as the operation by the KDF in Kapedo is still underway and so far the bandits are not yet weeded out as they have changes their course and moved to other parts avoiding the operation.
