The legislator attributed the upsurge to laxity among security agencies and influx of illegal firearms into the region from Uganda.

Citing the recent killing of a local health worker Daniel Isoe by armed thugs, Dr Wamalwa urged the County Commissioner Seif Matata and County Commander Mrs Lillian Okembo to ensure officers are up to their task of fighting crime. - Osinde Obare
