Six people have been killed at Lochacha village in West Pokot County following an alleged stand-off between cattle rustlers and area residents on Monday night.

According to the residents, three locals who were pursuing cattle rustlers were allegedly killed by KDF officers while the residents managed to kill the three rustlers who had made away with an unknown number of goats.

Confirming the incident, West Pokot County Police Commander Peter Katam revealed that investigations into the matter have started, vowing to crack the whip on those who engage in criminal activities.

At least 16 other people who were injured in the stand-off have been admitted at various hospitals nursing head injuries and broken limbs.


Area resident Moses Domonyang said; “Walikuwa wanataka kuchukua mbuzi lakini watu wakaanza kuwafuata…sasa ile harakati ya kufuata ndio sasa KDF waliona watu wengi wamekusanyika mahali moja wakaweka drone juu na wakatupa hapo bomb kubwa sana.”

West Pokot Deputy Governor Robert Komole stated: “President Ruto we request you to kindly address the issue…we have spoken about the NPR for a very long time but there is not attention that is being given to that effect.”
