Interior CS Fred Matiang’i has lifted the 30-day extended Kapedo curfew saying the operation to restore peace and normalcy has been successful.
The curfew that ran from 6.00pm to 6.00am had been imposed in January following recurrent incursions and rising tension along the Baringo-Turkana border.
“We shall however retain the 10.00 pm to 4.00 am nationwide curfew in line with the Presidential Directives on the Revised Covid-19 Containment Measures,” he said.
Fifty three firearms have been recovered in a month long police operation in Kapedo area, Baringo County.
CS Fred Matiangi said this was made possible through the efforts of security teams the chiefs, peace committees, inter-faith groups, and the elders through high-level engagements with the illegal firearm holders.
He lauded security teams and neighbouring county governments for their efforts in restoring peace.
