According to the sources two Kenya Defense Force soldiers were killed and several others were injured when they were ambushed by suspected bandits in Laikipia. The bandits shot and killed two GSU officers and critically injured another in the Ngerecha area of Kamwenje village, Laikipia West Sub County, just hours before the incident occurred on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the situation in Laikipia county is deteriorating at an alarming rate, and we urgently require the government to intervene as soon as possible with whatever resources it possesses. The general public is avoiding social interactions at the moment, and even students are not attending classes. Essentially, cattle rustling is the primary cause of all of this rough living, and the residents have been deprived of any sense of tranquility.
In his explanation of how bandits are attacking and brutally killing general service unit officers who have been dispatched to work in dangerous areas, George Natembeya appears to have expressed his sadness, according to reports. " The Star" reported that the officers came across a group of armed bandits, and that they were not at all prepared for the attack on their lives.
It was actually the bandits who started shooting at random, killing two GSU officers on the spot and leaving others with life- threatening injuries. In general, the bandits are extremely skilled at attacking, and they are doing everything they can to see if they can bring down the officers who have been dispatched to the area.
We hope that the government will look into the situation and increase the number of officers on the ground in Laikipia to help calm the situation down. According to reports, the bandits destroyed some of the construction equipment during a fierce firefight with the Kenya Defense Forces (KDF).
Meanwhile, inside sources have revealed that approximately seven KDF fighters were flown to Nairobi for treatment after they sustained shot wounds on the battlefield. Heavy gunfire in the Kamwenje region was reported by the occupants earlier in the day after the criminals attempted to infiltrate a GSU camp at Kamwenje Police Base, according to the report.
Residents of Laikipia county, on the other hand, have been subjected to a long period of violence. This has been going on since the strike Ol Moran skirmishes, which caused widespread devastation throughout the county.
To the extent that they were unable to surrender, the bandits who stormed the region must have displayed incredible courage. Several new details have emerged regarding the recent attack, including the fact that three people were killed.
