The security operation in North Rift has intensified as security officers starts to flush the bandits out of their hideouts. Bandits have terrorized the residents for over a decade, and the Kenyan government has laid new strategies to end banditry.

Two military helicopters bombed the Kalemngorok trading centre to flush the bandits out of their hideouts. However, injuries were sustained when the two military helicopters bombed the area.

One of the residents, Mr Kisike, revealed that he spotted the two choppers in the area as he was in his shop. Later he heard a loud band at the trading centre.

County Commissioner Jacob Ouma confirmed the incidents as part of a larger attempt to hunt out the bandits.

According to reports, the military intervention was in response to a livestock rustling incident in a town on the frontier between the Turkana and West Pokot provinces. Hundreds of livestock were taken in a Saturday attack in Masol.

In addition, bandits allegedly attacked locals on Saturday night while the town was under curfew from the Kapenguria-Lokichar trade route.
