Interior Cabinet Secertary Dr. Fred Matiang’i says Ol-moran, Sipili & Ol-Ng’arua areas of Laikipia County will be put under one administrative district called Kirima to enable security provision.

“A training base for elite police units be established in the area to enhance police presence and serve as a buffer zone between Laikipia residents and invaders from neighboring counties,” said the CS.

Matiangi’s visit to Ol Moran was marked by the torching of 8 homes in the dam samaki area, with bandits showing yet again their capability to evade government security organs.

He, however, expressed confidence that those instigating the attacks will be dealt with ruthlessly.

“More political leaders are on the radar for instigating the attacks ahead of general elections,” he said.
