Military should man our borders - Turkana MP - The Star

An MP wants the military deployed on the Kenya-Ethiopia-Uganda-South Sudan border to contain cattle rustling. Turkana women's representative Joyce Emanikor yesterday said deploying the Kenya Defence Forces on the borders will check aggression from the neighbouring countries. A senior police officer and a reservist were on Saturday shot dead by suspected bandits on the Kenya-South Sudan border in Lokichogio as they pursued stolen goats. "This is external aggression that needs the intervention of the military. Why do we congest our cities with idle soldiers when there is so much work on the borders?" Emanikor said. She said Kenya’s neighbours have their own military manning the same borders and it would make sense for KDF to do the same.
