Cat­tle rustling a crime not a cul­tural prac­tice

The Star (Kenya) - - The Big Punch -

The cur­rent state of in­se­cu­rity in the Ke­rio Val­ley, El­geyo Marak­wet, must now be solved once and for all. In the 21st cen­tury, we can­not tol­er­ate cat­tle rustling and ban­ditry as a cul­tural prac­tice. This is a crime and must be treated so by the gov­ern­ment. I call upon the lo­cal and na­tional lead­er­ship to take dras­tic mea­sures to end this mad­ness. The peo­ple of the Ke­rio Val­ley have a right to a peace­ful en­vi­ron­ment and nec­es­sary steps must be taken to guar­an­tee this. We can­not af­ford to lose more lives to crimes re­lated to cat­tle rustling! I hope ac­tion will be taken to have peace and or­der re­stored in the re­gion.
