Bandit Attacks Continue Despite Joint Operation in North Rift


Bandits in North Rift continue to pose a threat to the region’s security, despite a joint operation involving the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) and National Police Service (NPS).

The operation received assistance from the United States Government, which provided satellite images to pinpoint bandit locations.

However, bandits ambushed security forces twice in the same spot in Samburu West, leaving three KDF soldiers seriously injured and three NPS officers dead.

The government has already recovered 39 illegal firearms and made more than 124 arrests.

But residents still feel defenseless and are calling for increased security measures.
