Unmasked: Major Areas Where Laikipia Bandits Hide Finally Identified

The government has identified major areas in Laikipia County where bandits have been hiding, planning and strategising their illegal activities.

According to a report by Citizen TV Kenya, the areas surrounded by thickets have been key in shaping the flow of attacks against innocent locals in Laikipia County.

The areas include Jalanugu located in Laikipia Nature Conservancy where livestock that has been stolen is being hidden.

The second area is Maji Nyoka in Laikipia West, which is also located in Laikipia Nature Conservancy and it is there that armed bandits mostly spend their time.

The third hotspot is Airewua in Laikipia North which is located next to Magadi village within a place called Sossian Ward where they coordinate their operations.

Bandits are said to be settling from the rooftop where they mark time police and attack them in the event they are hunted.

Kamwenje Valley has also been established as a hotspot area where Livestock en route to Baringo is kept. The area is characterised by Deep Valleys which give bandits an easy escape route.

Rift Valley commissioner Natembeya George say they have mapped out the areas and they will be deploying strategic operations to have the bandits flashed out.
