De­ploy po­lice to guard bor­der, says Baringo MP

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

Baringo North MP Wil­liam Chep­tumo (pic­tured) has urged the na­tional gov­ern­ment to de­ploy more se­cu­rity of­fi­cers to pa­trol the porous bor­ders. He ex­pressed con­cern about the on­go­ing Ke­rio Val­ley gun­fire at­tacks be­tween armed Marak­wet and Pokots. Chep­tumo said the at­tacks threaten peace. “My peo­ple have had sleep­less nights for the last six months Youths have been forced to be armed with poi­soned ar­rows and engage in makeshift pa­trols on the bor­der be­cause there have been no se­cu­rity of­fers to help them,” he said.
