Residents living along the volatile border of West Pokot and Turkana have asked the Government to mop up illegal guns that are in the hands of criminals.
They told a joint parliamentary committee on cohesion, which visited Turkwel yesterday, that they were committed to ensuring peace prevails between the two communities.
"We are sending you with a message to the President that we do not want guns in this place. We have lost our loved ones and seen property destroyed because of conflict," Maendeleo ya Wanawake Lopata Ward Chairperson Mary Ngimor said.
The parliamentary committee chairman, Johnston Sakaja, praised the peace efforts, saying police reservists would be equipped to respond quickly to emergencies.
"We shall look into the welfare of these reservists to ensure they work well," he said.
