Graft, rape, cat­tle rustling should be cap­i­tal of­fences – West Pokot res­i­dents

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Cor­rup­tion, drug traf­fick­ing and de­file­ment should be clas­si­fied as cap­i­tal of­fences, res­i­dents of West Pokot county have pro­posed. Cat­tle rustling and hate speech should also be cap­i­tal of­fences as they lead to loss of lives, they said. Res­i­dents said this would help erad­i­cate these crimes. They pre­sented their views to the Power of Mercy Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee on Wed­nes­day in Kapen­guria. Many youth have died of drug-re­lated causes, while graft has de­railed de­vel­op­ment, res­i­dents said.
