Mwingi central member of Parliament hon Gideon Mulyungi has ordered marauding camel herders to leave Mwingi central in two week time.
Camel Herders pose security threats In parts of Engamba village in NUU ward, Dr. Mulyungi has said.
The legislator was speaking when he visited the remote, volatile epicenter of sporadic clashes in Engamba, an enclave that lies at his border with Kitui East Constituency.
During the visit, the MP insisted that the marauding Somali herders must leave after the elapse of the 2 Weeks quit notice issued by Mwingi authorities.
Meanwhile, a local NPR commander, whom the irate locals are accusing of colluding with the more than 1000 Somali herders who have set several makeshift camps – was disarmed by the security team at Nguni when MP toured the area on Monday operation.
This was reported by Mp personal assistant in the presence of youths, usually with concealed rifles – casually herding camels.
Well-fed donkeys while a water boozer refiled polythene tanks belonging to the encroaching Somali herders who in the past have killed locals. A one-stop shop selling sodas, miraa and bottled water could mean that the herders will tarry in Engamba for a long haul, the quit notice notwithstanding.
