Taking KDF to Volatile Kerio Valley On Point-Governor Bii
Uasin Gishu Governor Jonathan Bii has supported president Ruto’s move of sending KDF to the volatile Kerio valley.
Speaking to the press Bii said this will reduce the cases of insecurity that have been the order of the day.
The counties that have been facing insecurity include; Turkana, Samburu, and Pokot counties where cases of cattle rustling have been highly experienced.
“I support the move by president Ruto of sending KDF officers to help ordinary police in
dealing with bandits who have led to the loss of thousands of cattle and loss of lives”, said the Uasingishu governor.
He also assured residents of the region of peace.
“There is no need to lose lives yet we are capable of stopping banditry attacks and enhancing peace in the Borders”, said Bii.
Governor Bii noted that lack of insecurity has deprived many children of their right to education, and their wish as a government is to ensure all children in Kenya attend school without fail.
Bii further said that cases of selling and consuming illicit brew have increased among the youths in Uasingishu county and they would work to provide job opportunities for them.
“Many youths have been indulging in the use of illicit brew and the government is working to
provide jobs for them”, said Bii.
He warned those engaging in the sale of illicit and asked chiefs to take responsibility for dealing with sellers of illicit brew accordingly.
In an effort to promote peace and stability in Kenya, he further called upon the opposition party and its leaders to accept the August 2022 election results.
“The opposition leader Raila Odinga should stop living in denial that he won the elections. President Ruto won the elections and there is nothing he can do about it,” said the Uasin Gishu second governor.
