If you are a concerned Kenyan, take some minutes to say a prayer for communities in Isiolo and Marakwet as the dark spell of cattle rustling is still thrown at them. According to Citizen News, a bizarre incident has been witnessed today in Marakwet East.
"Marakwet, Isolo killings: 5 people killed in a shootout between police and bandits in Kaben. Angry youth said to have torched the bodies of those killed. Three people were killed by bandits in Merti along Isiolo-Samburu border #NewsNight," Tweeted Citizen.
The actions of these youth indicate that they are tired and angry about these cattle rustling incidents.
