Kenya issues shoot to kill order against criminals


Kenya’s security minister, Kithure Kindiki, has issued a shoot to kill order against criminals who target law enforcement officers in the troubled northwest of the country.

Mr Kindiki reiterated the government’s commitment to bring order to parts of the Rift Valley region that border South Sudan.

The directive was given a day after armed bandits killed three people in an attack.

For years, bandit attacks and cattle rustling have been a cause of instability in northwest Kenya.

Earlier this year, the army was sent to the area to deal with cross border criminal networks after several people were killed and livestock stolen.
