As a result of the violence, more than two people have been killed, countless others have been injured, and more than 1800 students have been left stranded in Cheptulele, Kelio valley, and the Elgeyo Marakwet boarder in West Pokot.
This comes after a series of attacks in the area, the majority of which occurred at night, causing residents to beg the government to create a police station in the area for security reasons, according to the sources.
“Tunaomba serikali itufungulie police post hii maeneo tafadhali juu ya usalama wetu na mifugo” (We are proposing that the government establish a police station in this area for our own and our animals’ safety.)
Teachers, on the other hand, have advocated the formation of a security partnership between their union and the Ministry of the Interior in order to ensure the protection of their lives and the lives of their family members, according to sources.
Furthermore, firearms in the wrong hands should be confiscated since they are being used in an unsuitable manner and are causing deaths.
While attempting to propose practical solutions, a plan to improve the country’s neglected northern and eastern regions must be put in place. Kenyans have asked their leaders to remain calm and work together to find a peaceful solution to the crisis in reaction to the blame games.
Members of parliament, the West Pokot, and a women’s representative for the West Pokot are all dealing with their own difficulties. “As residents of this country, we are going together to ensure the protection of our citizens in those regions,” she added forcefully.
Meanwhile, politicians have begun scapegoating the perpetrators of the latest bandit attacks in Kapedo. Only a few days ago, Kapedo was the target of a bandit raid. Members of the law enforcement community and the alleged thieves had an acrimonious meeting.
