31 October 2014, 22:59 Chepkwony Robert

Nakuru - Member of Parliament (MP) for Tiaty constituency Asman Kamama is now calling upon the Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo to take appropriate and immediate action against security officers said to have committed arson by destroying several shops and houses at Chesitet.

Ameyen trading centre as well as vandalizing teachers’ quarters at Lonyangapuo primary school, Tiaty constituency in the ongoing operation to flash out cattle rustlers.

Addressing the media at a Nakuru hotel on Friday, condemning the attack against security officers which led to a number of GSU officers, Kamama called IG Kimaiyo to speed up the action as well against security officers involved so as to avoid further loss of property perpetrated by security officers supposed to be handling flash out humanly.

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.
