VIDEO: Police Arrest Saku MP Dido Ali Raso’s Brother Over Connection To Marsabit Banditry Attacks

Saku MP Dido Ali Raso: His brother ‘Dokata’ was arrested during the weekend over his suspected involvement in Marsabit ethnic clashes

A month after brutal banditry attacks that left a Chief, an Assistant Chief and five others dead in Marsabit County, police continue to pick up suspects for grilling amidst an intensified probe into the killings.

Loglogo Senior Chief Kennedy Kongoman, Lokileleng’i Assistant Chief Keena Moga and the three other victims were in the pursuit of stolen cattle in the Awaye area when the unknown attackers ambushed them.

On Sunday, May 29, a local politician became the latest to be taken into custody over his alleged involvement in the ethnic attacks.

Dokata Ali Raso, who is the brother of Saku Member of Parliament Dido Ali Raso, was arrested by a group of plain cloth detectives who stormed into one of his dingy hideouts in Marsabit Central.

During the incident that was captured by CCTV cameras, Mr Russo – seemingly caught by surprise – was quickly pinned down by the emasculated sleuths who left nothing to chance.

A week after the attacks on April 28, Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i declared a 30-nights curfew in the area.

The curfew was effected on Monday, May 2nd and is expected to be active until Wednesday, June 1st.

The operation has been running in tandem with a disarmament exercise targeting illegal guns and ammunition.

The animosity between the Borana and Gabra communities has progressively boiled over and concerns have been raised over leaders like MP Dido who have frustrated previous attempts to pacify the area.

Rival groups have been armed and transformed into competitive political militias meting out violence on innocent civilians.
