SEE ALSO :Illegal herders ordered outSpeaking in Werugha trading centre yesterday, the leaders warned they would not allow the herders to continue grazing in the area. “We will hold a demonstration today to demand the immediate removal of the herders from settlement areas. They have provoked the locals and every effort should be made to remove them from the region to avert a catastrophe,” said Mr Mwaruma. “The herders are illegally occupying the farms. Since they have decided to kill and destroy our properties, we do not want them to continue staying with us. We will stand firm to protect our land from the invaders,” said Mr Tuja. “All leaders and residents must condemn the killing. We do not want more blood to be shed as a result of the illegal grazers. Let justice take its course,” he added. Voi Sub County Police Commander Joseph Chesire said five suspects have been arrested in connection with the killing. They will be arraigned today at the Voi High Court.
