Its barely two months since the first attack in Baragoi -Suguta Valley that left 42 policemen dead. Yesterday, the same heavily armed bandits attacked Masikita village and made away with about a thousand goats and four thousand heads of cattle.
According to the villagers, the bandits had general purpose machine-gun, hand grenades and other powerful weapons suspected to be those stolen from slain police officers in November attack.
On ground, sources are reporting of high tension that has forced Masikita residents to seek refuge in Baragoi town following threats of return attack from the killer gang.
Last month, the members of the parliament were unanimous against the government’s proposal to deploy Kenya Armed Forces in the area. Now residents fear that they are vulnerable to more attacks, and that they have been left defenseless after disarmament exercise that was conducted in previous months.
