Baringo North parliamentary aspirant Tokei Nyitore has lauded the government for the swift response to Laikipia skirmishes caused by banditry attacks.
He however called on the government to apply the same tactic used in Laikipia to flash out bandits, in Baringo North and Baringo South Sub Counties.
Tokei said that there are some schools in Baringo County that have been closed for years and the government is not putting enough efforts to see the schools reopen.
“We have nearly 10 schools that have remained closed for more than six years now in Baringo due to insecurity and the government is not addressing the issue. These schools including Chepkesin Primary which is totally closed down, Ng’aratuko, Chemoe, Kalabata and Kagir in Baringo North.” Said Tokei.
He revealed that there are also schools in Baringo South that have been affected by insecurity including Ng’elecha, Mukutani primary, Kapindasum primary and Kiserian Primary among others.
“CS Matiang’i should use the same force and man power he used in Laikipia County to restore normalcy, in all volatile areas of North Rift for a lasting solution to be achieved.” He said.
Tokei noted that there was low enrollment of learners in security prone areas owing to the insecurity situation and urged the government to urgently re-look the 100 percent transition rate arguing that it should be achieved in all the affected areas.
This comes as Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai says that normalcy has be restored in areas that were affected in Laikipia County noting that security operation will continue in the region.
