Last night, NTV ran an investigative feature story titled Silent Massacre which left many shocked with the kind of atrocities that have befallen our once peaceful country. The nerve-chilling piece revealed how Kenyans living in the North (Samburu, Pokot and Turkana communities) are mercilessly murdering each other in cattle raids.
What irked most of the KOT is that, at a time when we are faced with heightened terror attacks from enemies on the outside, the government further disappoints on its duty of protecting its people from internal conflicts. Over 70 people are said to have lost their lives in two days due to the fights in the volatile region.
Well, here are the reactions after NTV aired the investigative expose.
Its only in Kenya where stolen animals can run faster than Police and get lost! I now wonder the use of 32 teeth with height #SilentMassacre

The insecurity incidences are symptoms of a failing state. Hard to bear the #SilentMassacre in wild north.

#SilentMassacre It’s clear to see where the issues of Samburu, Pokot and Turkana emanate from…the leaders. @ntvkenya
