Officers recover 15 firearms

Security forces deployed in East Baringo to disarm villagers have recovered 15 firearms and 20 rounds of ammunition.

Baringo Officer Commanding Police Division Peter Njenga, who led the operations that started on April 27, said the weapons were forcibly confiscated from people suspected to be behind the wave of cattle rustling incidents that have rocked the area in the past two months.

Njenga said most of the firearms were AK-47 rifles, which are normally preferred by bandits.

Most of the residents have fled their homes following the commencement of the forceful disarmament exercise that was ordered by National Security minister John Michuki.
