William Ruto Gives Police Directive Following Turkana Ambush Murder

President William Ruto has ordered security agencies in Kenya to deal firmly with the men behind the Turkana ambush that left 11 people dead. President Ruto assured residents in a Sunday statement that cattle rustling would be a thing of the past in his regime.

Ruto gave the directive after receiving a comprehensive report on the attack. This attack claimed the lives of eight police officers, a chief and two civilians.

“After receiving a comprehensive report on the Turkana/Pokot incident that led to 10 security/administration officers losing their lives. I have instructed security agencies to deal firmly, decisively and conclusively with those involved. Cattle rustling will stop na sio tafadhali,” Ruto stated.

After giving his directive, the National Police Service – NPS spokesperson Bruno Shioso confirmed that an investigation had been launched.

“Following an attack against the locals of Kakiteitei Village in Turkana East Sub County where lives were lost and livestock stolen by bandits, a multi-agency security operation has today been launched in the area to arrest the perpetrators, recover the stolen animals and firearms, and return normalcy to the area,” he noted.

He further condemned the incident and said such acts need to be brought to an end no matter the cost. He also asked the public to provide any information that would lead to the arrest of the suspects.

A sister to the former presidential contender Ekuru Aukot was one of the victims in the attack. While calling for action from Ruto’s administration, the politician noted that his sister mothered two children.

He also stated that they have lost the area chief and eight other police officers who will be buried as soon as possible.
