LEADERS from Isiolo have appealed to the national government to intervene in a conflict over water and pasture at border areas between Samburu and Isiolo counties.
Governor Godana Doyo and Senator Mohamed Kuti said more security personnel should be deployed in the area to stop further killings.
They said it is unfortunate that three people died and four others injured when herders clashed at Kom in Isiolo county on Saturday.
“Besides deployment of more security personnel, the government should put in place raft of measures to end cattle rustling and banditry in the area,” Kuti said.
Doyo said insecurity in the region is to blame for slow pace of development.
“The communities should co-exist and embrace peace and harmony,” he said.
They asked the government to urgently convene a peace forum between the leaders and security teams from Isiolo, Samburu and Marsabit to discuss insecurity.
“The forum should come up with a lasting solution to avoid any further killings,” Doyo said.
Doyo and Kuti were addressing separate meetings in Merti and Dabale villages, Marsabit county yesterday.
They asked the communities to refrain from revenge acts and shun outdated cultures that promote rustling.
“If security personnel are backed by a helicopter, rustlers will not attack and steal livestock,’’ Kuti said.
