KDF Soldiers Will Be Used To Restore Insecurity In The Following County And Its Surrounding Areas

On Friday, January 7, Kenya Army Western Commandant David Tarus visited Baringo County and called a meeting with local elected officials and administrators.

The Major General claims that by building roads and other infrastructure, the military will make isolated locations accessible.

He explained that by connecting the isolated areas, the roads would increase socioeconomic activity in the area.

Further assuaging concerns about the KDF deployment, Major General Tarus asserted that the intervention will be more development-focused than an operation.

In order to make it simple for the security people to travel and for the populace to shop and engage in other economic activities, Tarus said, "We open up the highways that lead to Turkana, West Pokot, and Nakuru."

William Kamaket, a member of parliament for Tiaty who was also present, applauded the action and claimed that previous administrations had neglected to include the area in development.

Other political figures called for the building of additional amenities like schools, churches, and health facilities.

The new action was taken a few days after Interior Cabinet Secretary Prof Kithure Kindiki made suggestions about intentions to involve the military, which is frequently used as a last resort in dealing with security problems during an uptick in banditry.

He said, "We will not spare any effort, even if it means utilizing KDF, because we cannot afford to have a country where the people live in continual dread.
