There was sadness and anger in Nyeri County during the funeral service of 11 men from Nyeri following the recent 3rd Mandera Attack. Nyeri County yet again buried brothers, sons, fathers and breadwinners who had the courage to leave their homes and go to Mandera to eke a living. We pray that their souls rest in peace and God comforts their families. We are angry that Security Agencies with over 200 billion cannot do better to secure Kenyans. CS Nkaissery and team must do all it takes to secure Kenyans everywhere in the Country. We pray that the school going children left will get bursaries.
As Nyeri leaders we must work hard to pursue development projects especially the Kieni Mega Dams so that we have water for irrigation and our young people will not need to leave the County. Chaka Market needs to be developed together with the Nyaribo Airstrip to create jobs and employment. As Nyerians we gave said enough is enough, we will not wait to burry another set of young men. North Eastern leaders must take responsibility and lead the fight against terrorism in their regions. They need to lead by example, for instance they should have joined us today in Chaka. Let us pray for our Country even as we seek to improve it. Proposal to arm civilians in terrorism prone areas is attractive to remove them from being soft targets. God protect us.
