According to the legislator, tycoons and government agencies are secretly providing the bandits with financial muscles which has enabled them to easily purchase powerful weapons which can only be bought by rich people.
The confession by the MP is a day after Rift Valley Regional commissioner Hillary Natembeya admitted the police have encountered a daunting task in battling the bandits because they had superior weapons.
In an interview at Spice FM, Korere stated that it was impossible for the bandits to possess the kind of weapons they had without the help of some rich accomplices or even government agencies.
You don’t need rocket science to know what is happening. You know the bullets those bandits are using. They don’t get it for free. It is bought and they are very expensive, Yesterday they fired more than 100 bullets within 20 minutes and they are firing these bullets every night and every day," Korere added.
