BOIN­NET OR­DERS AR­REST OF RAIDERS

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties | Rift Valley -

Early this month, a sus­pected Pokot ban­dit was shot dead in a foiled raid in the Ke­rio Val­ley. The man was among 30 who at­tempted to raid Ch­e­sar­mat, but they en­coun­tered po­lice and re­servists on pa­trol near River Ke­rio. In­spec­tor Gen­eral of Po­lice Joseph Boin­net or­dered the ar­rest and pros­e­cu­tion of ban­dits among the Marak­wet and Pokot com­mu­ni­ties. Boin­net said, dur­ing an im­promptu visit to the Ke­rio Val­ley that fol­lowed re­newed clashes in Oc­to­ber, that those with il­le­gal firearms should hand them to gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials.
