Speaking at Nanyuki town Social Hall, the County administrator said some chiefs knew the bandits stealing livestock and some were benefiting with proceeds from cattle rustling.

“We cannot allow adults to destroy children. How can a chief fail to prevent a marriage of a child in his area and even participate in the ceremony as if it’s something good happening?” Okello posed.

During the meeting where he issued 47 chiefs each with a motorbike, Okello told the administrators to ensure Nyumba Kumi initiative worked in their areas to enhance security.

He asked them to heighten security.
