5 Kenyans killed in ambush attack

4 others have been seriously injured.

Four others were injured by crude weapons when the bandits attacked Chesogon village Friday night.

Confirming the incident, Pokot Central Deputy County Commissioner Geoffrey Kithinji said the raiders ambushed herders while they were grazing in Chesegon Village.

The administrator said that security officers have been deployed along the border to help in the recovery of animals.

“We highly suspect that these attackers crossed over from the neighbouring community but we have already deployed our team on the ground to get to the bottom of this matter,” said Mr Kithinji as quoted by the Nation on Saturday.

He said that calm had been witnessed in the area for the past few months, adding that investigations are ongoing to establish the root cause of the attack.

Addressing journalists, the Sigor MP condemned the incident and asked security officers to intensify patrols along the border.
