Following insecurities and increased deaths caused by bundits in Rift valley specifically along Kerio valley, several leaders have taken action against them but there is not change until now.
Today, deputy president William Ruto close ally identified as Kipchumba Murkomen criticized president Uhuru Kenyatta following massive killings of innocent people in Marakwet East by armed bundits. This comes after bundits attacked Tot and killed four people on the spot and stealing hundreds of livestock from the residents.
"Last term we had worked so hard to contain the senseless mayhem. Unfortunately the Office of the President and Interior Ministry reversed our efforts by withdrawing NPR and leaving the people at the mercy of bandits," said Kipchumba Murkomen.
Senetor Kipchumba Murkomen is now calling the government to bring back national police reservist (NPR) so as to provide security in the affected area. According to the source, Murkomen is blaming president Uhuru Kenyatta and his Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i for failing to take a permanent action against the bundits.
May their souls rest in eternal peace.
