At about 2am, heavily armed bandits raided a Quarry workers’ camp at Koromey area in the outskirts of Mandera town.

They killed 36 innocent Kenyans.

Survivors of the attack indicate that the bandits numbered some 20 people.

    At this rate the government will start suing the dead for suicide by failing to protect themselves!

    So the President was serious when he said security is a personal responsibility! But then, how could those 36 dead citizens protect themselves without guns? And why do we pay taxes? Cheka hapo tu ukijipiga picha, lakini iko siku utajibu hayo maswali siku ya kiama.

    The government is not serious on matters security. There should have been a 24 hour curfew imposed in the town, and all houses searched for weapons, instead everything looks normal and the guns are somewhere being prepared for the next attack. How does the president expect pple to protect themselves without any weapons?
