Names of people on the spot over Kapedo attacks

Rift valley regional coordinator George Natembeya has given a hint of individuals who are believed to be the masterminds of attackes in Kapedo region in Rift Valley.
Yesterday, Natembeya said they have already launched investigations to establish whether senior Government officials, security personnel and prominent individuals were behind the bandit attacks in the region, including the troubled Kapedo at the border of Baringo and Turkana.
The said leaders are reported to be politicians from the wider Rift Valley region.
“Those found culpable irrespective of their status or position in society will face the full force of the law. We will not tolerate any form of lawlessness,” warned Natembeya.
He went ahead and warned chiefs in Tiaty sub-county, where armed bandits are suspected to be coming from to identify the culprits or face the sack.
Already, Tiaty legislator William Kamket and Silale Ward Member of County Assembly  Nelson Lotela had been summoned to appear before the Directorate of Criminal Investigations detectives at their Nakuru offices this week.
The two, who are under investigations over recent attacks in Kapedo, have been summoned to appear before the DCI for further interrogation.
Kamket, who was arrested last week in connection with the attacks, is out on Sh100,000 bond. He was however ordered to appear before DCI detectives on Friday.
During his first appearance to the DCI offices, Cliff Ombeta told the media that the legislator had been questioned about the death of a man only identified as Edward.
Ombeta said the police had demanded that Kamket provide information about the man who is said to have died six years ago.
Ombeta said a team of DCI officers from Nakuru questioned the legislator on the matter.
