The Head of State recently declared some parts of Laikipia county as disturbed zones following incidences of cattle rustling and destruction of property .Tough security measures had to be introduced to restore calm and possibly arrest bandits behind the unrest .

Multi-agency security teams had to be deployed to engage the bandits who have been giving residence sleepless nights over years .

However, the Rift Valley Regional Coordinator has revealed a major hurdle in the ongoing mission. George Natembeya claims that the bandits own sophisticated weapons which are often used by international armies in war.

According to K24 , the police boss stated that while our security officers are using AK47 and G3 riffles , the bandits are on the other hand using M16 and other heavy machinery. He claimed that the weapons are similar to those used by foreign armies who come to train in Kenya .

A question of how the bandits acquire these sophisticated weapons has emerged as a serious security concern .

What is your opinion on this ? How can our government help our men and women in uniform to counter these enemies of peace ?
