Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki has met Samburu leaders over banditry attacks at Harambee Annex.

Banditry attacks have been on the rise in the North rift regions including Samburu County where people have lost their lives and cattle stolen by the bandits, as well as displacement of families.
