Armed Pokot militia have sieged Lorogon village in Turkana taking upto 900 hostages. Officials say that the heinous act is as a result of territorial disputes among local communities.
Most of the hostages are women and children.
Police camps nearby were not spared either as they were also attacked on Saturday. The militia engaged the policemen in a heated exchange of fire and it appears our law enforces were overwhelmed.
It reported that mediation talks between the Pokot and the Turkana are due to be held on Sunday.
There have been calls for the government to send KDF to the region, to finally put the insecurity matter to an end. It will have to be seen whether this will ever happen.
