Mwingi West MP Charles Nguna has assured residents of security during this time when suspected bandits alleged to be camel herders from the Somali community are terrorizing some parts of Mwingi.
The MP says that he has held meetings with relevant authorities to lay out plans to restore calmness in the area.
“I had a meeting with Interior CS Prof Kithure Kindiki yesterday and we talked about the same. I have also met with the county commissioner and agreed that community policing must be active. I urge our people that whenever you spot unfamiliar people within your areas of residence, report to your chiefs first before taking any other action so that the chief communicates to the police”, MP Nguna said.
The MP went ahead to condemn previous attacks, asking the police deployed at Nguutani Migwani and Mwingi Central to increase night patrols as a way to curb the insecurity.
“I highly condemn the cases of attacks by the bandits because there should be no one who should be counting losses to attacks by the terrorizing bandit like the incident that happened at Kakululo where they killed and stole the villager’s donkeys”, he added.
