The CS, who spent Boxing Day inspecting progress on establishment of new security facilities in the region, said the government aims at fully eradicating the menace of banditry and destroying its political, cultural and commercial networks in 2024.

“The suppression of bandit terror will give way to opening up of the region through social amenities, economic infrastructure and durable peace building programs spearheaded by the Government but involving non-governmental stakeholders,” said Kindiki.

The CS also shared a Boxing Day meal with officers serving in the frontline at Karanga Joto, at the border of Baringo North and Tiaty Sub-Counties in Baringo County.

“Distributed Christmas season celebrations food items for Anti-Stock Theft Unit (ASTU), Rapid Deployment Unit(RDU) camps in Ngaratuko, Kagir, and Loruk and for Loruk Police Station, Yatya Police Post and local National Police Reservists (NPRs),” he stated.

The CS was accompanied by Regional, County and Sub-County heads of security agencies and Unit Field Commanders in the North Rift.
