"Tunachinjwa kama mbuzi" (We are being slaughtered like goats), said one of the elders during a press conference in the region. The elders called on the government to take more action to address the security situation in the area.

The government has deployed security forces to the area to try and quell the violence, but the elders say more needs to be done to address the root causes of the conflict. They called for a dialogue between the warring communities to find a lasting solution to the problem.

The banditry in the north rift region is believed to be driven by a range of factors, including competition over resources, political tensions, and ethnic rivalries. The situation has been compounded by the proliferation of illegal firearms in the area.

The government has acknowledged the security challenges in the region and has promised to take action to address the problem. However, more needs to be done to ensure the safety and security of the residents in the affected areas.
