The Member of Parliament representing residents Samburu West Constituency honourable Naisula Lesuuda has opened the lid on why a multi angency team that responded to Suguta distress bandit attack calls failed to pursue bandits nor capture them after a heavy gun shootout engagement.

Speaking in an interview with KTN news the able member of Parliament blamed the Kenya Power and Lightening company of failing to ensure that there is adequate power supply in Maralal. Lesuuda claimed that bandits took advantage of the electricity absence to launch attacks on innocent civilians knowing well that security teams will have an uphill task going after them in the dark.

They engaged in a gun battle with security keepers who arrived at the scene and still managed to escape. Officers failed to successfully go after bandits as the area was extremely dark making it difficult to engage assailants without harming civilians.

According to Lesuuda, Suguta market centre and Maralal at large where bandits unleashed terror on citizens yesterday night has had no electricity for the last three days. She also pointed fingers at the government for failing to equip and deploy adequate police reservists to effectively deal with bandits. She called on KPLC to make things work.

Lesuuda painfully disclosed that another man was killed today. Monday night, bandits killed a shopkeeper at Suguta market centre and stole undisclosed amount of money.
