At least four National Police Reservists were Sunday killed in a clash with suspected cattle rustlers at the border of Isiolo and Samburu Counties.
The reservists were pursuing stolen goats when they were ambushed by gunmen in the area.
Police say the goats were stolen from Isiolo and were being driven to Samburu when the incident happened. A major operation was yesterday underway in the area to pursue the attackers and police e warned there will be casualties. Cattle rustling is common in the area.
Some of those killed were later buried as per their traditions. The region relies on reservists to keep peace at large. The government has been taking measures to address the menace that has left many homeless and maimed.
This includes deployment of more police officers in the region and sponsoring of development projects there.
