Kamket was arrested after he joined leaders from Baringo and West Pokot Counties to criticize ongoing security operation in the volatile Kapedo area.

The clashes in Kapedo have led to the killing of GSU Deputy Operations Director, Emadau Temako, in Kapedo, Turkana County.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has issued a stern warning against leaders from Northern Kenya following rising ethnic tension in the region.
