CS Kindiki Reveals What He's Forced To Do To End Banditry As He Revokes Former Uhuru's Orders On NPR

As he revokes the former president Uhuru's orders on the national police reservists after they were disbanded from the 14 counties where they were deployed to provide security, interior cabinet secretary Hon. Kithure Kindiki has explained what he is forced to do to put an end to banditry in the affected areas.

In response to an event in Elgeyo Marakwet where two girls were killed by the bandits, the interior cabinet secretary has reportedly stated that he is now compelled to deploy Kenya Defense Force in the affected areas as well as other military forces to battle banditry. Since they intend to deploy KDF forces there, Mr. Kindiki personally went to the location and spoke to the victims, assuring them of the highest level of security.

He revoked the order and issued new orders to immediately recruit 450 NPRs to combat the vices occurring in Elgeyo Marakwet. He also criticized the former president Uhuru's decision to disband the national police reservists, who he claims were providing good security in the affected areas. Though he has stated that the ministry and the government will employ all available manpower or funding to ensure that calm is restored in the impacted areas in the interim.
