By James Munyeki | August 2nd 2021

A General Service Unit (GSU) officer was on Saturday killed at Ol Moran area in Laikipia County. This brings to three the number of people killed in the escalating incidences of cattle rustling in the area.

The officer was among police officers patrolling the Laikipia-Baringo border in the wake of the attacks.

The attacked happened just day a day after armed bandits raided Wangwaci village and killed one person.

In the  July 30 attack, the attackers stole 50 cows causing further tension and anxiety among residents who had on July 29, withdrawn their children Kabati, Mihango and Wangwaci primary schools in Ol Mora

Security agencies say over 500 animals have been stolen. So far five schools have been closed after parents withdrew their children for fear of the rising insecurity.

The residents from Ol Moran, Wangwaci and Matuiku areas have since fled to the nearby Kinamba town.
