Ngilu called upon the Ministry of Interior and Coordination to restore security in the area. Ngilu was addressing the residents of Kasiluni and Kalwa over the weekend.

A resident Mwendwa Maithya said, “There is a political price to pay for the killings and suffering we have endured at the hands of the armed Somali bandits disguised as herders. He said their political leaders have failed.”
