Kindiki Deploys Elite Squad to Sondu

Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki has deployed a contingent of specialist security personnel to contain the escalation of violent crime in Sondu Town and its environs.

In a statement on Thursday, the CS indicated that the move was necessitated by the loss of lives as well as the destruction of property.

“The special deployment is to be supervised jointly by the Rift Valley and Nyanza regional security teams with firm instructions to ensure immediate resumption of normalcy and the arrest and prosecution of each and every perpetrator of the horrific crimes that have been committed against the people of Sondu Town and its environs,” read the statement in part.

In response, the CS explained that police bosses who were deployed in the region were transferred as investigations into their conduct kicked off.

“In the meantime, it has been decided to transfer all local security heads on both sides of the border and other security and public officers whose want of effectiveness, impartiality and/or competence is deemed to have resulted in the success of the criminals,” he added.
