Bandits are a threat to the safety of pastoralists who live in the Rift Valley and the East of Kenya. The government, through the Ministry of Interior Security and Coordination, has taken steps to stop it, such as putting police reserves on duty to help other security guards. But in some parts of Laikipia and Samburu counties, people are still seeing these things.
Kithure Kindiki, the Interior Security Cabinet Secretary, is pictured here.
Interior Security Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki met with leaders from the pastoralist regions today to talk for a full day. They talked about each county in turn. Kindiki wrote on his Twitter account that he met with leaders from the counties of Kisumu, Tana River, Isiolo, Elgeiyo-Marakwet, Kitui, and Kisii at Harambe House in Nairobi.
He also said that they agreed to make sure that Kenya is safe, prosperous, and peaceful, and that socioeconomic development happens for everyone. https://twitter.com/KindikiKithure/status/1614996690494263298?t=R7oOeu9z2C5cR90ShpvwhA&s=19
