"Tuko Na Amani" Kapedo Residents Say As KDFs Succeed In Chasing Bandits Away From the Region

A number of residents from Baringo and Turkana have expressed their happiness and gratitude after the government deployed a number of Kenyan Defense Forces in the region.


While reacting to the presence of the KDFs, a woman whose name is yet to be disclosed has revealed that they are currently experiencing peace in the region despite the fact that most of them have lost a number of relatives through the increasing banditry attacks.

"They came in my house and shot my husband after which they left. It's like they were sent because they were just killing people how they wanted but after the government brought the Kenyan Defense Forces, most of us are currently having a an easy time doing our things", she said.

According to the reports given by the woman or rather resident of Baringo, she said that she has no beef or grudge against the suspects who might have murdered her husband for their own reasons. In her own words, she said that she is not the only one who lost her loved one adding that she has forgiven them.

One year ago, a number of police officers along with KDFs were deployed in the region after a group of bandits attacked and murdered a GSU superitendent after which they stole a number of weapons. In order to fish the suspects out, KDFs were able to gun down a number of bandits after which most of them fled from the region.

However, several residents have also expressed their happiness thanking their village elder for what they claimed was their hard work in bringing peace in the region. According to the reports given by most residents, they claimed that a number of village elders brought them together and advised them to live in peace an advise that they listened to.
