His sentiments were echoed by Interior PS Karanja Kibicho who reiterated that the government will pursue the criminals and ensure they are prosecuted.

Over the weekend, property belonging to Chief Joseph Mwangi Kiiru who has been at the forefront of fighting cattle rustling was set on fire by criminals.

According to National Government Administration Officers (NGAO), the chief paid the price for doing the right thing.

For instance, cattle rustling has been on the rise in the region, with violence and clashes extending to homesteads.

Child defilement cases have also been reported hence chiefs were mandated to restore order and report those involved to be prosecuted.
