“They laid ambush killing the innocent people on the spot,” Sinoni resident Wycliffe Kimar said on Saturday.

Kimar said a milk supplier was riding his motorbike back to Mochongoi after supplying milk down the volatile Chemorong’ion and Arabal villages.

“He unfortunately bumped on the bandits at Kasiela who were faster driving away their stolen livestock towards Tiaty, then they killed him,” Kimarar said.
