De­ploy po­lice in Ti­ga­nia East to end in­se­cu­rity – res­i­dents

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Eastern -

Ti­ga­nia East res­i­dents have urged the Meru gov­ern­ment to de­ploy po­lice to vil­lages. Led by MP hope­ful Josphat Gichunge, they said herders from neigh­bour­ing communities raid their farms. “Our peo­ple are dy­ing of star­va­tion be­cause they can­not go to their farms. The at­tacks have be­come too fre­quent. We are ap­peal­ing to the na­tional gov­ern­ment to pro­vide them with se­cu­rity to en­able them to go back to their farms,” he said yes­ter­day. Gichunge spoke in Ti­ga­nia East con­stituency af­ter do­nat­ing food to res­i­dents from semi-arid ar­eas. He said there can be no de­vel­op­ment with­out se­cu­rity.
