0 192

Police in Kisumu are holding a middle-aged man alleged to be behind theft of cattle within Manyatta B in Kisumu County.

Brian Kuya was on Monday morning arrested by officers from Serem Police station in Nandi County and transferred to Kondele police station after revealing to the police where he hides the stolen cattle.

Maxwel Odhiambo a Manyatta resident who lost his cattle to Kuya and his colleagues says that many Manyatta residents have lost their cattle to the unknown thugs.

Odhiambo says that last week he lost nine of his cattle and after reporting the matter to Kondele police station, he took the initiative to visit various markets where he later recovered his stolen cattle at Serem Market in Nandi County.

“On Tuesday last week I lost nine of my cattle. Reported to matter to Kondele police station and from there I started my search in various market places. Fortunately on Wednesday I managed to recover four of my calves at Serem market. Thereafter I reported the matter to Serem Police Station where the suspect was arrested and led us where the rest of the cattle are hidden,” explains Maxwell.

It is reported that the suspected thugs usually pack the cattle in a lorry before ferrying them to a forest either at the border of Kakamega and Kasabet or in Serem, Nandi County before being slaughtered and meat sold locally.

Odhiambo told Ghetto Radio that he is not the only suspect but many other residents have fallen into the trap.

“Another woman lost six of her cattle, a neighbor here lost three. I can say many Manyatta residents lost their cattle,” he added.

The residents are now calling on the relevant authorities to find a way of curbing the new wave of crime.

Sospeter Obungu Owich, an aspiring MCA for Kondele Ward says that the police have neglected their patrols, making the slum estates more insecure.

“Today morning I received a public cry that cattle have been stolen from Manyatta. I took the initiative to engage the relevant authorities and am happy that the suspect was arrested .I can categorically state that the police have neglected their duties. There are no patrols within the slums except those raiding Changaa dens. Let them reclaim back their responsibilities and assure security to the residents,” says Owich.
