Interior Cabinet Secretary (CS) Kithure Kindiki's address was abruptly cut short by gunfire from armed bandits who have been terrorizing the neighborhood's people for years in Kitui County's notorious Ngomeni district.
Three minutes into the CS's speech, the audience became restless as four gunshots rend the air, causing Kitui Senator Enoch Wambua to intervene and inform Prof. Kindiki that the locals were constantly living in dread.
The gunshots heard just two kilometers from Mandongoi Primary School in Mwingi North, where the CS had just arrived with a county security team to ensure the community's safety, reportedly triggered panic and put security on high alert.
Prof. Kindiki recognized that the firing from the amounted to daring him as a person and the government security apparatus when touring the area to comfort the families of two people slain by bandits in separate incidents last week.
Interior CS Kithure Kindiki later ordered police to use their firearms if the camel herders who have invaded private farms in Mwingi, Kitui county, refuse to vacate the area.
