"We decided to work closely as elected leaders by engaging the Interior ministry to find lasting solutions to this issue that has for long demoralised our people. Senseless banditry attacks over the years have led to the loss of hundreds of innocent lives and the destruction of property worth millions," Guyo said.

He expressed optimism that the county will attract more investors once insecurity is addressed.

The governor said the investments will help address unemployment and high poverty levels.

Prof Kindiki affirmed his commitment to finalise the recruitment of 350 National Police Reservists, and the operationalisation of three sub-counties Cherab, Sericho, and Oldonyori.

He also asserted his ministry's dedication towards the placement of the soon-to-be-established unit in Yamicha, Biliqo Marara, and Mlango, police stations in Korbesa, Malkagala, Escort, and Eldera.

"Apart from recruiting NPRs, I pledge to involve all government agencies to ensure the three security roads around Kom durte/ Biliko marara are made motorable," he said..

The CS also pledged to prioritize negotiation for the expansion of Isiolo International airport and development of telecommunication masts for Kom, Boji, Daaba, Iresaboru, Rabsu, Yamicha, and Leparwa.
