Azimio Postpones Kisii Rally; Ruto Ejects Over 120 Uhuru Allies in Parastatal Changes & William Ruto Invites Kenyans to Pray For Drought on Valentine’s Day

Good Morning,
Kenyans from the vast region of North Rift, Baringo, Elgeyo Marakwet, and Turkana, may be forced to take a leap of faith after President William Ruto promised drastic action towards fighting banditry.

The region has been suffering from violent clashes and banditry for decades now, even with successive governments deploying a variety of strategies, including improved security and law enforcement, greater community engagement, and improved access to services, such as education and healthcare.

Ruto’s new promise is that no Kenyan will lose their life anymore and has directed interior cabinet secretary Kithure Kindiki to shift base and to set camp in the North Rift until banditry ends.

“CS Kindiki is not here today because he was in Baringo today. He was in Turkana yesterday. I have told him to leave his office in Nairobi to go and live in the North Rift until the banditry comes to an end,” President Ruto said during a thanksgiving service in Nakuru.

However, the promises made by the government of the day will not materialize unless security personnel in these areas are appreciated.

Trans Nzoia governor George Natembeya said that police officers are not rewarded enough and may collaborate with bandits to survive. He revealed that during his time as RC, the government neglected officers.

Do you think the ‘tough-talking’ Kindiki will end what has become a norm in the Rift?
