This follows the killings of eight people in retaliatory attacks between two communities at Kiutine and Kinna Duba on Meru-Isiolo border.

Speaking in Tigania East, Mr Munya claimed the national government had abdicated its role of providing security.

“It is saddening and heartbreaking for Meru people to be killed and cattle stolen without action. We have many police camps on the Meru-Isiolo border yet they are not providing security to locals,” Mr Munya said.

He called on the Meru County commissioner and other administrators to act fast to restore peace.
