A video of a aging woman from Lamaiwe in Mochongoi ward of Baringo county has made many to run emotional as she narrated how they have survived bandit attacks for over 50 years.She claimed that alot of livestock have been stollen by bandits thus denying their children and grandchildren all that they need to live since they solely rely on them for a living.
According to her, the government had kept mum despite their unbearable anguish over years.

The woman through the video pleaded with president Uhuru Kenyatta to come to their aid in reciprocation to the unanimous support that they gave him during the past elections. She urged the president to consider visiting and standing with them during their time of need .
Banditry remains a major threat to development particularly in arid and semi arid counties of Baringo ,Laikipia , Samburu , Turkana, Elgeyo Marakwet and West Pokot counties. Several measures have been staged by government to mitigate the vice but none is yet to yield fruits.
