The Service Party (TSP) leader Hon. Mwangi Kiunjuri on Thursday visited hundreds of Ol Moran residents who fled their homes after a series of banditry attacks that left them homeless.
Hundreds of women and children have camped at Deliverance Church in Ol Moran Centre, even as police comb through the thickets of Ol Moran forest in search of the bandits.
Speaking during the visit, Hon. Kiunjuri said that time was ripe for the government to change tact to effectively end the perennial banditry attacks in the area.
‘’We don’t need all these police officers here, what these people want is to be given Kenya police Reservists otherwise known as homeguards to protect us’’. Kiunjuri said
Attacks in the area have been going on despite police presence, with several schools and houses being torched.
‘’This operation for now should continue. But we want to state that we are not leaving Laikipia. We are here to stay.’’Kiunjuri said
Among the food items donated by Hon. Kiunjuri include 3 tonnes of maize flour and 1200 packets of milk.
Others present during the visit include Laikipia Women Representative aspirant on a TSP ticket Beth Waithira ( Wa Diana) who donated 100 packets sanitary towels, Laikipia North MP aspirant on a TSP ticket Maina Munene who donated 100 bales of 2kgs packets of maize floor and 40 blankets.
