The government has established a police station in Isiolo South constituency to end insecurity in the new Eldera division, with another Rapid Deployment Unit station be constructed at Korbesa in a bid to improve security in the area.
Garbatula Deputy County Commissioner Stephen Nyakundi while urging area residents who had fled their homes due to insecurity from conflicts over pasture and water to return since calm has been restored added that the station was built through funding from the NG-CDF, Isiolo South constituency.
Nyakundi directed chiefs and their assistants to make sure their people have settled back in the ‘manyattas since peace initiatives were under way, with the elders and political leadership involved.
The commissioner said that security agents were on high alert to ensure the people’s lives and property were safeguarded, adding that cases of youth in Kinna being involved in drugs smuggling, poaching and human trafficking were also under close watch.
Nyakundi further appealed to the Isiolo, Garissa and Wajir lawmakers to embark on promoting peace and harmony along near their county boundaries where frequent attacks are staged following differences over water and pasture.
While urging all leaders to call upon their people to practice restraint whenever an attack occurs, warned politicians against inciting their people to violence whenever there was tension.
And to avoid escalation of bloody conflicts, Nyakundi instead, advised them to stick to the rules imposed by the water and grazing committees.
