Ugandan soldiers attack village
By Vitalis Kimutai and Osinde Obare
Leaders in Turkana have petitioned the Government to take decisive action against Ugandan soldiers who bombed a village injuring a girl and killing hundreds of livestock.
Reports indicated that more than 500 head of cattle had been killed and 16 people injured in the attack.
Turkana Central MP Ekwe Ethuro, former MP Emmanuel Immana and councillors condemned the attack.
"The information we have so far is that 100 people were injured in the barbaric attack and 10,000 head of cattle were rounded up and taken to Uganda by soldiers," he said.
Mr Ethuro said the Ugandan People Defence Forces using a helicopter reportedly attacked Tepes cattle rustlers who had crossed into Kenya with stolen stock. "It is sad that foreign armies can violate our territory and make our land a battle ground, bombing innocent villagers and livestock," said Ethuro.
Roima DC Moses Ivuto said the number of casualties and the affected livestock was yet to be verified.
A 16-year-old girl, who sustained serious injuries following the attack at Lokorimokamongor in Turkana Central, was taken to Lodwar District Hospital for treatment.
