At the same time, Kamama urged the Independent Police Oversight Authority (IPOA) to investigate and bring the culprits to book with a common purpose of dealing with the menace.
“In the same vein, IPOA should take swift action on these officers. I have already reported to them and I think there will be people on the ground to investigate and bring the culprits to book,” said Kamama, who adds that they will not relent as leaders until we have peace between Turkana and Pokot communities.
He said peace was paramount for a community to develop, as far as the reality that these were areas known to be economically deteriorated due to such conflicts.
Kamama, on the cattle rustling saga, condemned the act of the criminals who perpetrated the killing of police officers.
“I condemn in the strongest terms possible all those criminals who perpetrated the killing of our police officer. We should not condone such criminals act in this age and time. We care becoming a civilized society, but when we see criminals performing such act I think that is total regression, we are going backwards,” added Kamama.
