Baringo East MP Asman Kamama has asked Internal Security minister Katoo ole Metito to hold peace meetings with the Turkana and Samburu communities.
Speaking to the press in Nakuru on Monday, Kamama said there is need to find a lasting solution to cattle rustling between the two communities to avert more deaths.
"I applaud Metito's efforts to restore peace in the area. He however should bring together the two communities to seek a permanent solution to cattle rustling," said the Education assistant minister.
Kamama criticised the deployment of the Kenya Defence Forces in Samburu and Turkana saying they may not solve the problem. He called for the establishment of two GSU and an Anti-Stock Theft Unit camps in the area to contain banditry.
"There should be well armed security forces at Merit, Akoret and Lochakula," he said. Kamama asked the government to create a good road network to Mt Silale, Morwakokola and Morwakiringo to enhance accessibility to the remote areas.
