A Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) officer was on Thursday, April 15, killed by bandits after they raided a military camp in Mukutani at around 8 pm.
Confirming the sad news,Chief Benjamin Lecher stated the camp was home to security officers including; the General Service Unit (GSU), Rapid Deployment Unit (RDU), and KDF officers.
“There was an exchange of firearm that saw the KDF officer killed. His body is still lying at the camp. There is still tension in the area,” he stated.
The incident came just a few days after Rift Valley Regional Commissioner (RC) George Natembeya announced the resumption of operations in northwestern counties of Baringo, Laikipia and Turkana.
He said multiple attacks in the troubled region forced the state to carry out an operation to weed out criminals and retrieve illegal firearms in the hands of the civilians.
