The situation in Laikipia County is again becoming worrisome. In fact, fear is rife that the flare ups, if not tamed, could spill over to the 2022 election period.
Bad news from Laikipia County this morning is that a security guard is in critical condition after he was shot by bandits in Wanguache area of the troubled Ol Moran of Laikipia County.￼
According to the Laikipia Deputy County Commissioner Hezron Nyamberi, the man was guarding a maize plantation when he was shot twice by armed people as at about 2am.
Locals who spoke to the People Daily said that the man only identified as Kiptoo was employed as a guard at the 100 acre maize plantation belonging to a retired Kenya Defence Forces senior officer.
Meanwhile, leaders and residents of the troubled Laikipia West have hailed the government for deploying officers to restore security in the area.
They feel the creation of Kirima sub county that will have its headquarters at Ol Moran town will enhance security in the area that borders the vast Laikipia Conservancy that has for a long time harboured armed criminals.
