Laikipia County has been hit with bandit attacks in the past and this has forced the Ministry of Interior Security in conjunction with the Kenya Defense Forces to set up way to ensure that peace and calm is restored.
The bandits steal cattle from the locals as well as illegal grazing which has led to loss of lives in this area in the recent past.
This afternoon, Mr. Joseph Kanyiri who is the incoming Laikipia County Commissioner, together with Brig. Assava of the Kenya Defense Forces, DCC Kirima, DCC Laikipia West among other Security Commanders paid a courtesy call to Merigwit Primary school, Ol Moran Catholic Parish and the ongoing Trench-work at Kamwenje.
The trenchwork at Kamwenje will be the final blow on the bandits as it will deter them from crossing over with stolen cattle or bringing in their livestock to graze on illegal grounds.
The trench is being dug by the Kenya Defense Forces, 21 Engineers unit together with the Kenya Police and the General Service Unit who are all on the ground ensuring that the work goes on smoothly.
According to the National Police Service Twitter handle, the progress of the trench seems to be going on perfectly and the officers in charge of digging it were commended.
From the looks of things, normalcy is being restored in Laikipia given that people can now operate in the markets without any fear of getting killed or maimed.
The peace is being restored in Laikipia County and this is thanks to the efforts of the interdepartmental security agencies that are all camped in the volatile region of Kenya.
Ol Moran which was the worst hit by the clashes, has seen a steady rise and continued business since the officers are now on the ground and doing most of the work.
