The officers have said that the National Police Service, especially AP units and GSU, had deployed novices than experienced officers and that this exposed officers risk of being attached and even killed by bandits. Several police have been deployed to quell violence in volatile Laikipia North and Laikipia West, however the structure is hampering their operations.

According to the report shared by the Nation News, we have learnt that units and formations from various AP units, the Kenya Police and GSU are operating separately and only converge at Ol Moran Police Station to formulate strategy.

This situation has undermined their operations, with some officers saying unit commanders sometimes issues contradictory instructions.

The officer also said that the National Police Service, especially AP units and GSU, had deployed more services than experienced officers and that this exposed officers to the risk of being attached and even killed by bandits.

Worryingly, on Wednesday, the Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya briefed senior police officers at the Ol Moran Police Station and left.

Also residents of Ol Moran have also accused the Police of lethargy and sluggishness in fighting bandits, with some of them complaining that officers take too long to respond to distress calls.
