Four bandits shot dead in Laikipia as state intensifies war on banditry.

While responding to a bandits’ raid in Muige ranch based in Laikipia County, a multi-agency team based in the county intercepted freeing bandits around Posta Area in Relit village and fatally wounded four of them on 4th February 2023.

The multiagency team recovered multiple firearms from the scene among them a G3 riffle, M16 riffle and an AK47 assault riffle with several rounds of ammunition.

Bodies of the four bandits of Samburu origin were taken to Nyahururu Level 4 hospital for postmortem and identification.

The death of the four comes just a few days after the Cabinet Secretary for the ministry of interior vowed to end banditry cancer which has been ailing the country for more than one hundred years.

Kindiki is seeking to end banditry by training and reintroducing police reservists in cattle rustling prone areas in Rift Valley and the Northern parts of Kenya.

In Laikipia County alone, the ministry of interior and administration has so far trained and deployed over 360 police reservists who are currently reinforcing the anti-banditry multi-agency team in the county.

Speaking in one of his several visits to Rift Valley and Northern parts of Kenya, Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki vowed to ruthlessly deal with bandits who have made killing people and stealing livestock their business.

“For 60 years you have made it business as usual. You kill people and steal livestock and go away. Because you have dared us and you want us to think that you have enough weapons, we are ready to engage you,” Kindiki warned bandits.
