Three lead­ers want Nkaissery sacked over at­tacks and stalled dis­ar­ma­ment

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

Some Laikipia lead­ers have de­manded the re­moval of In­te­rior CS Joseph Nkaissery over the spate of at­tacks in the county. They are Laikipia East MP An­thony Mu­tahi, nom­i­nated leg­is­la­tor Sarah Leko­rere and Ju­bilee Party in­terim chair­per­son Christo­pher Maitho. There has been a con­flict be­tween farm­ers and armed Sam­buru herders. The lead­ers said the CS has failed in his man­date of pro­tect­ing lives and prop­erty. Nkaissery is par­ti­san in dis­charg­ing his du­ties and does not de­serve to be in the se­cu­rity docket, the lead­ers said on Sun­day. Mu­tahi and Maitho said while lo­cal lead­ers are busy restor­ing san­ity, Nkaissery is en­gag­ing crim­i­nals in sideshows. Leko­rere said the three-month wave of in­se­cu­rity in Laikipia is a cre­ation of lead­ers, who are the own­ers of thou­sands of cat­tle graz­ing on pri­vate farms, and the com­mu­ni­ties are just be­ing used as scape­goats to hide the truth.
