The government has asked the Kipsigis and Kuria communities living on the Trans Mara West-Kuria East border to surrender illegal firearms.
Narok county commissioner Kassim Farah yesterday said there are many unlicenced firearms in the region which are being used in cattle rustlings by members of the two communities. Farah, who was addressing a peace meeting at Ng'endalel in Trans Mara, asked wananchi to inform the police on owners of the guns.
"We will soon launch an operation to recover all illegal firearms in this area. Whoever has any gun should surrender it as soon as possible," he said. The commissioner said the government has issued an amnesty to those who surrender the guns.
