Kitui south member of National Assembly Rachael Kaki has today expressed her dissatisfaction on how Kitui county government is cold towards eradicating bandits despite the number of lives lost.
Addressing members of press today, Kaki wondered why county government of Kitui is reluctant concerning issuance of court order to chase Somali herders out of Kitui county.
This evening, King’ondu Mwangangi, a middle aged man from Mutomo was killed by bandits while grazing his cattle in Musenge village within Mutha ward of Kitui South constituency.
This killing comes barely a month after another man was killed by these stubborn camel herders.
‘we are tired of the intruders and we are no longer at peace, ‘ the disturbed Jubilee MP said
Surprisingly, the camel herders do not come from Tana River as many may think but from Garissa, Wajir and Mandera and are well known according to Hon. Kaki.
The second term MP wondered why Governor Ngilu is quiet while residents are brutally loosing lives despite promising to eradicate these bandits.
‘I do not understand why the Governor is silent over a year now in office while our people are being killed. We should have received a court order by now from the county government to do away with these herders from our game reserve, disappointed Rachael added.
However, according to the legislator, the major cause of loss of lives is that the police officers in the area have been bribed by the herders not to act.
‘ All officers starting from the OCS to the other police officers should be replaced to help curb this menace,’ stated the MP.
