Three Killed In Marsabit, Day Kindiki Faces Senate Grill

In the wee hours of Wednesday, bandits claimed the lives of three people drawn from Hallan, Kargi Marsabit county, setting the pace for  questioning of Interior CS Kithure Kindiki by the senate.

According to Marsabit security officials, those killed are two boys aged between 5 and 7 years and a middle-aged man.

Additionally, a man is nursing serious injuries after the daring attack that has thrown residents into panic.

CS Kithure Kindiki has however maintained that the deployment of KDF soldiers to aid efforts of the police in the regions described as dangerous and disturbed has yielded calm.

Kindiki, states that 43 guns have so far been recovered in security operation in North Rift, 

As Kithure outlined plans to start a disarmament exercise in the war torn regions, he exuded confidence in pacifying banditry completely.

“I have the blessing of the Commander in Chief (Ruto) to deal ruthlessly with any political leader who is aiding, abetting or supporting the terror in the north, even if they are in his political party. Even if they are in the opposition,” he said.

“The easier ones to deal with are the one’s in the president’s political party, but the ones in the opposition will start crying and talking about Kenya Kwanza and Azimio. I am not going to be drawn into that debate,” Kindiki added.

Kindiki further defended his move to deploy KDF soldiers in the disturbed regions arguing that it did not need parliamentary approval.

The banditry activities in the north have resulted in the deployment of the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) troops to the region, in order to support the National Police service in responding to security emergencies.

The Interior CS  further committed to national cohesion and security, despite concentrated intense efforts in the North Rift.
