More police officers to be deployed along Baringo - Laikipia border to end cases of cattle rustling

25 June 2016, 16:49

More police officers will be deployed along the Baringo - Laikipia border to end cases of cattle rustling in the area.

Speaking today when she toured the area, Nyahururu Deputy county commissioner Ms Flora Mworwa said that the Government would post more officers in police posts constructed by the Laikipia county government.

“It has emerged that most police posts that were built by the county government had inadequate police officers besides the county government spending millions of shillings to build.The government will deploy more officers to boost the efforts of the already enrolled officers who are manning the border,” she said adding that Kenya Police Reservists who are undergoing training will also be deployed in the area.

Ms Mworwa noted that the area had enough police posts and what were required were just police officers.

She said that cases of cattle rustling have been occurring along the border with suspected bandits from Baringo invading Laikipia County citing Kamwenje, Wangwaci, Maua and 18 villages as the most affected areas.

 “I want to assure residents of these areas that more officers will be deployed in the area to restore calm in the and also boost morale of those already in the area. It is true that police officers in the area were inadequate but the government is working on this issue,” she said.

The Deputy county commissioner regretted that lives have been lost and hundreds of livestock lost in the past due to cattle rustling which she said would be a thing of the past.
