According to information shared on Facebook, the suspected rustlers torched down the houses to shift attention of home owners before driving the animals away.
Elsewhere in Butunyi, residents gave account of the harrowing experience that saw several houses torched.
Locals have blamed the security officials in the area. They called upon the government to intervene.
It is so unfortunate that this has happened in the villages. We hope the government will intervene and ensure those suspects are arrested and arraigned before court. We also need prayers for the security of our country.
