Security Team in Laikipia Warned as Residents Reveal What Bandits May be Doing That Require Caution

On Saturday, the CS of Interior Security Dr Fred Matiang'i while speaking after he toured Ol Moran in Laikipia announced that the schools which had been closed due to insecurity will be reopened. According to CS Matiang'i, the schools will be fully guarded by the police officers.

According to CS Matiang'i, both teachers and learners will be escorted by security officers while going to school and when returning home in order to ensure that they are not ambushed by the bandits on the way.

Laikipia Governor Ndiritu Muriithi who was speaking yesterday at St Mark Catholic Church in Ol Moran also urged the residents of the area to send their children to school. Governor Muriithi assured the residents that security has already been enhanced.

However, the people of Tiaty Sub County have warned the government to ensure that the security team carrying out the operation has taken proper precautions as they flush out the bandits from the war-torn area.

According to the Tiaty Sub County residents, the bandits could be hiding within Tebelekwa and Kaptuya. The residents say that the bandits could be taking cover with some of them escaping to give a false impression that they had vacated from the area.

More details have revealed that apart from the residents who escaped to churches and police stations for safety, many others are said to have fled to the neighboring Baringo County seeking refuge after their homes were burnt down by the bandits. Despite the call to resume learning, most of the families will begin from scratch as all their properties and crops were destroyed by the bandits and their animals stolen.
