The fight against bandits and other notorious criminals in the areas considered dangerous and unsafe like Baringo, Samburu, Laikipia, Turkana, West Pokot, and Elgeyo Marakwet counties has now taken a fresh twist.
According to recent developments, the government has shown extra determination to flush out bandits after moving with speed to seek help from South Sudan and Uganda.
According to the Interior CS Professor Kithure Kindiki, the government of Kenya is in close liaison with the two countries with regard to the operation to completely end criminal activities in the country.
According to reports, these informants—who are occasionally chiefs or security officers—give bandits information that helps them plan and execute effective raids and ambushes on security personnel. After a successful raid, the informants typically get paid in cash or in the form of animals. The bandits typically spare the informants and their families during an attack, creating a complicated and dangerous scenario that makes it difficult for security forces to address the issue.
In today's attack bandits have attacked Chemolongon Arabar and made away with tens of livestock. The demonstrations indicate the people's wrath as bandits continue to kill and destroy property in the region. Police have on the other stepped up their operations with more police and intensity of their actions levelled up.
