He was speaking during the Thanksgiving prayer meeting at State House to give thanks for his victory. While on the issue of conflict, he let out that the Somali president, as well as the South Sudan one and the Ethiopian one as well notified him they’re well aware of the strife in the region, reminding him they are all looking up to Kenya to come up with the solution to solve the violence in the region.
Linking that to the ongoing current unrest in Turkana which has seen 9 security personnel lose their lives, he reminded the clergy to also pray for peace and security in Kenya.
The Head of State acknowledged the bandit attack in Turkana County on Saturday which claimed 11 lives.
In Saturday’s bandit attack, the casualties included eight police officers, a local chief and two civilians.
He at the same time challenged the police force to step up and deliver on their responsibilities, saying his government had supported them by giving them financial autonomy.
President Ruto recently granted financial autonomy to the National Police Service by transferring its budget from the Office of the President and designating the Inspector-General as the accounting officer.
