Isinya Deputy County Commissioner, Stanley Too, says 32 suspected cattle rustlers allegedly on the run, are being pursued by police.
Isinya DCC Stanley Too.
Too, who spoke on Jamhuri Day celebrations in Kitengela town on Wednesday after reading the Presidential speech, said his concern is not about the four suspected rustlers killed by farmers in November but others on the run.
Korompoi farmers who trailed suspected rustlers to Kitengela lynched four suspects as one escaped with gun wounds, and later set on fire their track.
Kitengela Slaughter chairman William ole Kasio said farmers around Kitengela do not sleep because of rustling that has devastated their lives. He claimed rustlers recently went to the home of Senior Chief Ole Mutunkei and stole 100 goats.
“All these livestock are sold in Kiamaiko and we are appealing to residents to know all their neighbours so that we can control the number of strangers with ill motives in our midst,” said Kasio.
The DCC arraigned all the senior police officers serving in the Sub County and told members of public to engage the officers at personal level, adding that their cooperation plays a major role in ensuring own security.

“I am working closely with my security team to ensure you have a sound sleep all the time. We have poured dozens of police officers in Kitengela and brings in more each day from Isinya to ensure we manage security here,” said Too.
While speaking during the occasion, Isinya OCPD Kinyua Mugambi heaped praises on the new Kitengela OCS, Renison Gambo, who was not present and who he said loves his job.
When the new OCS was posted to Kitengela, residents had a sigh of relief with the change of guard saying the replaced one had his own interests which negated the effort of fighting criminals.
He was taken to Ngong in a cross transfer with Gambo, who received fame after clearing gangsters in the urban centre.
