ODM Leaders and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga earlier today joined Agriculture CS Peter Munya and Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi at Mweronkoro in condoling with the the bereaved families.
The Mweronkoro 7 were killed by bandits on the night of January 5th 2022 in Muthara Ward of Tigania East, Meru County.
“We have resolved as local leaders to work with National Government security apparatus to ensure this acts of crime come to an end once and for all,” CS Munya says.
On his part, Governor Kiraitu Murungi maintains that the order to ban camels inside Meru will not change as empowered by schedule IV of the constitution of Kenya.
According to the Governor, the call by Tigania residents for the suspension of the District Land Adjudication Settlement officer (DSLA), whom they accused of unfair practices, is a step in the right direction.
“We need more administrative units in the area. My administration will give land to the military in the border between Isiolo and Meru to create a buffer zone to stop encroachment community land in the county,” Governor Murungi says.
Presidential hopeful Raila Odinga supported the local leaders’ call for the speedy arrest and prosecution to bring to book the culprits of the heinous murder.
Other leaders present include Siaya Senator James Orengo, Meru Deputy Governor Titus Ntuchiu and several MCAs.
