Interior CS Kindiki announces government plans to start rewarding Kenyans and police officers who will aid in the arresting of bandits across the country.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki has said that the government will reward law enforcement officials and civilians who assist in apprehending bandits around the country.

Kindiki said in a statement on Friday, December 29, that the Ministry of Interior will oversee the government’s implementation of the initiative.

“Going forward, the Government through the Interior Ministry will run a program to financially reward gallant officers and members of the public whose efforts will result in the arrest of the key planners, executors, and enablers of banditry whose profiles will be published countrywide in the new year,” Kindiki stated.

The Interior CS stated that cattle rustling in Northern Kenya has developed into an organized criminal industry over time, causing deaths, destitution, and uprooting.

“Its impacts are severe. It deprives pastoral communities of their economic mainstay and aggravates the conditions of poverty in the rangelands, fuelling communal grievances and revenge attacks,” he said.

CS Kindiki mentioned that the Government is sustaining the war on banditry and its perpetrators, enablers, benefactors, and beneficiaries by making banditry a painful venture, ensuring recovery of stolen livestock, and rewarding facilitators of recoveries.

The statement comes after CS Kindiki visited Posta, Laikipia County, happy to oversee the handover of heads of cattle that had been stolen, and recovered in full, and to reward security officers, local leaders, and youth whose collaborative efforts have realized the recovery.

Kindiki was accompanied by Regional, County, and local security heads, officers, and area political leaders.
