Rift Valley Regional Coordinator George Natembeya has asked illegal firearm holders in North Rift to surrender them.
Speaking at a peace and security meeting attended by leaders from the North Rift Economic Bloc, Natembeya received over 20 firearms surrendered by people from Turkana East as a sign of goodwill in restoring peace.
“If you have an illegal firearm, you better surrender it to security agencies near you before we start using force,” he warned.
Natembeya urged communities to live in harmony for the sake of development.
He said Sh128 million had been released for the construction of Chemalingot- Lokwamusing road.
The meeting was attended by governors Jackson Mandago (Uasin Gishu), Stanley Kiptis (Baringo), Josphat Nanok (Turkana), Stephen Sang (Nandi), and John Lonyangapuo (West Pokot).
Also in attendance were senators Samuel Poghisio (West Pokot) and Malachi Ekal (Turkana), MPs and MCAs from West Pokot, Baringo and Turkana counties.
Governor Mandago challenged neighbouring communities to embrace peace. He also encouraged them to enrol their children in school.
