The Commission together with other Government agencies have commenced investigations to bring to book the masterminds of these conflicts. We assure the people of Marsabit and the nation at large that we shall continue to discharge our mandate without fear or favour and will bring all wrongdoers and mongers of hate crimes to book,” said NCIC Chairman Samuel Kobia.

In a statement Monday, Kobia urged security agencies in the country to bring to book the perpetrators, financiers, schemers and executors of the savage acts of violence.

He also called upon the County, National Government, and humanitarian agencies (local and international) to support the internally displaced families

The Commission commended Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai for quick deployment of multi-agency security teams in hotspots areas saying that the action has staved off further loss of lives and destruction of property.

NCIC has urged the residents of Marsabit County and especially Saku constituency to heed their call for a ceasefire and embrace dialogue.

The Commission will spearhead the inter-community peace dialogue in partnership with other stakeholders,” he said.
