MPs from Pokot storm Eldoret police station over arrest of suspect linked to banditry in Kerio Valley

Two MPs from Pokot stormed the Eldoret police station demanding release of a suspect held in connection with banditry along the West Pokot and Elgeyo Marakwet border where four people have been killed by bandits in the last one week.

Tension is high along the border between the two counties and more than 1,000 people have fled from their homes fearing retaliatory attacks.

Pokot South MP David Pkosing and his Sigor counterpart Peter Lochakapong stormed the station after police arrested the suspect Jackson Kibet at the Moi Referral Hospital.

Kibet was taking care of his brother who is admitted in ICU at the hospital. He was among those injure when bandits suspected to be from Marakwet raided Chemusto area in Pokot on Friday. Two of the raiders were killed in a gun fight between the two neighbouruing communities.

“We have come here because the man arrested is innocent and was just taking care of his injured brother. It’s the Pokot community which was attacked and we cannot thus be suspects”, said Pkosing.

He said police had failed to arrest five key suspects who were involved in the raid and instead went for innocent people.
“We want the man arrested to be released unconditionally because he is innocent”, said Pkosing.

Pkosing and Lochakapong said although tension was high in the areathey had asked the residents to remain calm as the insecurity matter was being handled.

Police in the volatile region have been placed on high alert following fears of an upsurge in violence heading into the festive season.

The first attacks earlier took place in Sewes, Marakwet East subcounty. Residents fear the attackers were out to kill and not to
steal cattle.

“No livestock was stolen. The first victim was waylaid and shot dead by bandits. The reservist was killed when he responded to the distress call,” a witness said.Those killed were Kenya Police Reservist Luka Suter, 30, and villager Joel Kirotich, 35. The bodies were taken to Iten County Referral Hospital mortuary.

Marakwet East MP Kangogo Bowen flew to the area and appealed for calm. “Such attacks are acts we do not wish to witness again. Peace had returned to this region and we ask the police to ensure the bandits do not kill our people again,” he said.

He also told residents to remain peaceful and resist carrying out retaliatory attacks, which would further spread the violence.
In Baringo, two people including a Tugen herder were shot dead by suspected Pokot bandits in the other attack.

Earlier this week, a herder was killed in the same area and hundreds of livestock stolen. Elgeyo Marakwet county commissioner Dr Ahmed Omar has directed chiefs and other security officers to ensure the attacks do not take place again.

Governors John Lonyangapuo (West Pokot), Alex Tolgos (Elgeyo Marakwet) and Stanley Kiptis (Baringo) have been working on joint peace programmes between communities in the North Rift.

“We have made a lot of progress in dealing with banditry and we will work to ensure the attacks are a thing of the past,” Lonyangapuo said. The Kerio Valley Development Authority (KVDA) is also in the process of building two mega-dams at Arror and Kimwarer, which will help to improve the lives of residents in the North Rift.

UEFA Nations League: Switzerland stun Belgium 5-2 to make final 4

LUCERNE, Switzerland (AP) – Top-ranked Belgium fell to a stunning 5-2 loss against Switzerland on Sunday, with Haris Seferovic’s hat trick lifting his team into the UEFA Nations League finals.

Belgium led 2-0 after 17 minutes thanks to Thorgan Hazard’s two goals and was cruising toward the inaugural Final Four mini-tournament to be hosted by Portugal in June.

Only defeat by a two-goal margin could stop Belgium winning the group – and a Swiss team inspired by Xherdan Shaqiri hit back with five unanswered strikes, including three by halftime.

“We all disappeared from the match suddenly,” Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois said. “It leaves us with a lousy feeling.”

The shock was on in the 62nd minute when defender Nico Elvedi made up for a bad early error to put Switzerland 4-2 up with a glancing header.

Seferovic sealed the victory by getting his third with a header in the 84th after Shaqiri’s trickery set up Kevin Mbabu for a cross.

Switzerland won Group 2 in League A on the head-to-head record because both teams had nine points from four games, and Belgium beat the Swiss by just 2-1 in Brussels last month. Iceland placed last and is relegated.

The tiebreaker option seemed moot when Thorgan Hazard scored after 66 seconds and again in the 17th minute.

But Switzerland struck three times in an 18-minute spell before halftime, and kept up the pressure in the second half.

A wild match played out in a noisy, intimate 16,000-capacity stadium in Lucerne gave Swiss fans what they looked for after an infuriating World Cup exit in July, in a lackluster 1-0 Round of 16 loss to Sweden.

The game also recalled Belgium’s stunning 3-2 comeback win over Japan in its World Cup round of 16 – only this time it was the Red Devils wasting a two-goal lead.

Belgium quickly led when captain Eden Hazard’s brother Thorgan seized on a bad mistake. Thorgan Hazard had been offside when a forward pass went directly to Elvedi, but the defender misplayed the ball behind him into space. Thorgan Hazard, now onside because of the opponent’s pass, pounced to flick the ball over goalkeeper Yann Sommer.

In the 17th, Thorgan Hazard was allowed to move into the Swiss penalty area and fired an angled shot past Elvedi and the diving Sommer, his teammates at Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Switzerland now had to score at least four goals to edge the tiebreaker – and had three by halftime.

A penalty by Ricardo Rodriguez in the 26th was awarded for Nacer Chadli’s foul on right-back Mbabu. Minutes later Rodriguez crossed for Shaqiri to guide a header across the goalmouth for Seferovic to tap in as Courtois scrambled in vain.

Seferovic then swept in a curling shot with his weaker right foot. He now has 17 goals for Switzerland one year after he was booed off the field by home fans in a World Cup playoff despite the team advancing.

Belgium’s capitulation had echoes of a 3-1 loss to Wales in the Euro 2016 quarterfinals. It leaves this team still seeking a trophy to justify the “Golden Generation” label that is often a curse in world soccer.

By Lilian Mutavi

A police officer on suspension was arrested on Sunday for arresting and demanding bribes from Embakasi residents.

Titus Matinge was nabbed in Mukuru kwa Njenga after residents reported him to the authorities.

A police report stated that the officer was demanding money to secure release of those who fell to his trick.

“Police officers from Embakasi moved in and established that the officer was not from our division,” the report reads.

Upon being searched,  Matinge was found in possession of a certificate of appointment.

The suspect said he was from Kenya Airport Police Unit (Kapu) but the JKIA police boss denied knowing him.

After that, Matinge changed the narrative and said he was from Railways police, a claim that was dismissed by Nairobi bosses.

The officer, the report states, later claimed he was stationed at Railways, Mombasa.

The police are holding him for further investigations.
