Tension High in Elgeyo Marakwet as Armed Bandits Attack a Village Killing 3 on The Spot

Tension is high in Elgeyo Marakwet Endo ward after armed bandits attacked a village killing a mother and her two daughters instantly. As reported by the area senator, the unknown gunmen stages the attack a few kilometers from the police station and GSU camp.

Murkomen now calls on the government to act fast to prevent further loss of lives. He added that the locals don't trust the police anymore but he hoped that a serious flash out will restore the trust. Murkomen said it was a bad decision to disarm locals in what was termed Kenya police reserve saying the same should be reconsidered.

He however urged locals to stay calm as he had been promised by the interior CS that peace would be restored. " one upside though is the assurance by interior CS Dr.Fred Matiangi who I spoke to this evening that intensified security response in the area starts this morning. I really hope the state will act ruthlessly this time and deal a deadly blow to these terrorists," angry Murkomen said.

The attacks come as the situation in Laikipia is still fresh in Kenyans minds. Cattle rustling is a thorn that has proven difficult to be completely phased out.
