Ugly Scenes: Bandits wreak havoc in Baringo

Candidates sitting the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams in two different schools were on Monday, March 7, forced to abandon the national test after gunmen launched attacks near the examination centres.

The group of armed bandits launched attacks in Kapkusum in Muchongoi, Baringo County.

As of the publishing of this post, the exchange of fire between the gunmen and security forces was still ongoing.

Further reports indicate that most residents of Kapkosum village have fled their home this afternoon.

In the schools, no casualties were reported.

But from some footage emerging from the battlefields, scores of bandits from both sides have lost their lives.

The attack comes despite an earlier assurance from the Education Cabinet Secretary (CS) George Magoha and the Rift Valley Regional Commissioner Mohammed Maalim assured that security would be beefed up in the areas.

On Sunday, the Rift Valley Commissioner announced that the state would give KCPE candidates in Turkana, Elgeyo Marakwet, West Pokot, and Baringo Counties, food and accommodation during the three-day examination period.
