Baringo County Commissioner Peter Okwanyo has issued a shoot-to-kill order against bandits, arsonists, cattle rustlers and those illegally in possession of firearms.

The Commissioner noted that violence by such people against residents would no longer be tolerated.

"I have ordered police officers to shoot anyone stealing livestock, whether in possession of a firearm or not. Also, anyone found with an illegal firearm will be shot on sight.

"We will no longer lose more people because of some few elements who do not want to reform," said Mr Okwanyo.

He also warned those responsible for the torching of houses and bandits who ambush motorists on the Loruk-Marigat road that they would be killed on the spot.

"We will not relent till these few culprits who cause mayhem are killed," he said.
