The Kenyan Defense Forces (KDF) have been facing a daunting challenge in their efforts to combat the Pokot bandits terrorizing the region. The bandits have been using scary terrains as hideouts, making it difficult for the KDF to locate and eliminate them.
The terrains are known for their rugged landscape, thick vegetation, and deep gorges, providing the bandits with perfect cover to carry out their attacks on unsuspecting civilians and KDF personnel. The bandits have also been using sophisticated weapons and tactics, making it difficult for the KDF to subdue them.
In a recent incident, the bandits ambushed and killed several KDF soldiers who were on a routine patrol in the area. The attack has prompted the KDF to launch a major operation in the region, with the aim of flushing out the bandits from their hideouts.
Currently all security forces including Kenya Defense Forces are trying to stop the bandits from their inversion but it is getting worse each and every day.
It has become difficult for the Police to spot them because of the bandits new tactics as revealed below.
According to reports from reliable sources, it is said that the bandits are mixing with animals, innocent people ie Men, Women and Children in which they are using them as human shields thus making it difficult for the security personnel to defeat them.
The KDF has urged the local population to cooperate with them by providing any information that may help in the fight against the bandits. They have also called on the government to provide more resources to aid in their efforts to restore peace in the region.
The situation remains tense, and the KDF has warned travelers to exercise caution when traveling through the affected areas. They have advised anyone who may come across the bandits to avoid any confrontation and report any suspicious activities to the authorities immediately.
