Popular Mwingi Central Member of National Assembly Dr Gideon Mulyungi who is commonly known as Tsunami has issued a stern warning shot over what he terms as impending clash between residents living along the border between Kitui and Tana River counties over grazing land.
Addressing his constituents during his tour to the insecurity prone areas of Mwangeni, Ngooni and Sosoma in Ukasi, Mwingi East sub county, Tsunami said that so far there are reports that hundreds of camels have been sighted coming to the area from Tana River county and this is not a good sign if history is anything to go by.
Dr Mulyungi called upon security personnel in the country led by Inspector general of police Joseph Boinet and Interior CS Fred Matiang’i to take immediate action to rescue the situation, as the residents in the area have over the last few years lost more than 30 people owing to clashes between them and herders of Somali origin.
The legislator offered to use his CDF funds to construct several police posts along the border if authorized by security officials in order to ensure that no one with ill intentions crosses the border to commit crime in Kitui.
The Mwingi central MP said that its better when the government prevents impending crimes in the country, instead of just waiting to respond when loss of live has already occurred.
