For many years government through police officer have protected pastoralists from aggression. have recruited reservists to support police in case of impromptu attacks.

It is unfortunate that some of these pastoralists have turned against police with influential people financing criminals who are cattle rustlers.

But the harsh terrain, which makes it easy for bandits to ambush officers and disappear, has affected security operations in the area.

Investigators do burn the midnight oil to nail those who supply the bandits with sophisticated weapons.

This comes after most families fled the area to seek refuge in camps kilometres away, after police launched a security operation to arrest bandits who have been unleashing terror.

Sources familiar with the operation said told the Star there are plans to set up a police training camp in the Kapedo area to help restore peace and security.

The camp will ensure the border town grows and the camp will act as a buffer zone between the two warring communities.
