Cattle Rustlers Kill One Person In Kerio Valley

One person was yesterday morning shot dead and three others were injured after cattle rustlers raided Kabetwa village, Endo ward in Marakwet East Sub County.

The incident that came barely a week after Internal Security Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i toured the area has heightened tension in the already volatile region with residents fearing revenge attacks.

According to Marakwet East Sub County Commander Clement Mbavu, the armed criminals whose number has not been established had opened fire on the family that was tending their farm leaving one dead and the other three victims nursing gunshot wounds.

Mbavu said they have launched a manhunt for the criminals adding the deceased’s body was moved to Tot hospital mortuary for preservation.
