As the government moves to end disturbance in areas of Turkana county especially Kerio Valley, locals who have inhabited these areas for years and interacted with the very people who are causing mayhem in the region have spoken to the media and revealed some of the tactics the bandits use to evade police traps and confuse security apparatus.

Speaking to TV 47, one of the community elders in Kerio Valley revealed that bandits are constantly on the move and usually shift to another region after launching attacks in another region. "When they attack Turkana, the next attacks will be reported in Elgeyo Marakwet or Samburu,"he said.

By doing this, the elder says that the bandits are able to confuse security apparatus through hide and seek games. Ealier, the bandits launched attacks in Laikipia. When the government moved security apparatus to Laikipia, they attacked Elgeyo Marakwet county. Again, after the government moved in to contain the situation in Elgeyo Marakwet, the bandits last week attacked Turkana county.

As such, the elder urged the government to employ drone technology to monitor movement of these notorious bandits.
