Parliament has directed two departmental committees on security to probe the Baragoi killings and other incidents of violence in the country.
The joint committees on Defence and National Security will probe the circumstances under which 42 police officers were killed by armed bandits in Baragoi, Samburu County two weeks ago.
It will also investigate the alleged atrocities committed by the Kenya Defence Forces in Garissa county following the killing of three KDF soldiers by unknown gunmen in the town on Monday.
When passing the motion to allow parliament to investigate the incidents, MPs described the security situation in the country as a "crisis of law and order" and accused the executive of intimidating legislators from speaking out on issues "affecting our people".
Deputy speaker Farah Maalim has ordered the committees to table the report in one week.
