Leaders from kitui East and Kitui south constituencies have ganged up in a bid to flash out somali herders who have encroached their area along the border between Kitui and Tana River Counties and who have been linked to killings of Kamba farmers.

The 6 mca’s and 2 Mps from the affected areas met today with the kitui county commissioner Samuel Kimiti to seek lasting solutions to the perennial banditry along the border which has cost many their lives.

Led by Kitui East Mp Nimrod Mbai and his counterpart from Kitui south Rachel Nyamai, the leaders said they were fed up with brutal killing of their people by the bandits who have always gone scot free.

Also, Mr. Mbai said he has been receiving threats from Garissa town Mp Aden Dualle whom he claimed owner 90% percent of the camels which have been causing sleepless nights to Kamba farmers.

The Kitui East legislator said he will not be cowed by Dualle’s threats as he has the mandate of protecting his people and all herders must restrict their camels to their places of origin.

Mbai said that a consensus has been reached with the commissioner to flash out the herders, even as security officials seek a lasting solution to the problem.

Kitui south MP Rachael Nyamai who has also lost her electorate in the clashes urged the government to intervene and compensate the affected families for the loss they have suffered in the killings.

Nyamai said that they want nothing less than the eviction of the bandits and closedown of Inyali polling station in kitui south mutha ward located inside the game reserve. She said the polling station has been entertaining and attracting the herders to reside within.
