Police laxity is to blame for killings in Kapedo, Turkana Governor Josphat Nanok has said, and demanded that police do their work properly. Two police reservists were shot dead and two others injured after suspected Pokot bandits attacked Kapedo Catholic church on Sunday. Area chief Mercy Asmit said the police reservists had been hired to provide security during a mass at the church.
Nanok noted on Tuesday that security organs have to work as required for the situation to improve. "We want to know from the County Commissioner, Police Commander and NIS what you do for the President here if the people you have been mandated to secure cannot move freely as required by the Constitution," he said. For a week now all these heads have not been in the county," he added at Lodwar county headquarters where he addressed demonstrators.
The Governor noted that three students were butchered by suspected Pokot bandits yet no action has been taken. The driver of the vehicle the Kapedo High School students had been travelling in was also killed. The institution was closed indefinitely as a result.
