DP Gachagua Tells Off Kamket Over Withdrawal Of Police In Tiaty

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua chastised Tiaty Member of Parliament (MP) William Kamaket for asking President William Ruto to withdraw police officers deployed to his constituencies.

During an interdenominational prayer service in Baringo on Sunday, Gachagua told Kamket that the officers would not be withdrawn until peace was restored in the constituency.

The DP stated that banditry attacks have become a threat and urged the lawmaker to first call his house to order.

“We agreed to deploy police to repossess weapons. I have heard Kamket ask the President to remove police officers…Those police in Tiaty are there to work. If you want the officers removed, talk to bandits to surrender arms. Before then, we are not removing police officers,” DP Gachagua told the MP.

This came after Kamket asked President William Ruto to withdraw police reservists from the roads and deploy them to forests.

“The police on the road. There are no bandits on the roads, they are in the forests. Let them be removed from the roads and taken to forests to help in disarmament,” he said.
