Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet on Friday graced celebrations to mark the Turkana-Pokot peace deal.
The event to commemorate four years of peaceful coexistence was held at Kakong in Turkana County.
It was attended by senior Turkana and West Pokot leaders who included Turkana Governor Josphat Nano,Women Rep Joyce Emanikor, Kapenguria MP Samuel Moroto and Turkana South MP James Lomenen.
Others were MPs Mark Lomunokol(Kacheliba), Peter Lochakapong(Sigor) and Ali Lokiru(Turkana East).
This was the fourth edition of the celebrations since the inaugural ceremony that was held in 2015 after the two communities ceased hostilities.
It was also attended by local grassroots leaders, religious leaders and reformed warriors.
Boinnet urged the two communities to sustain peace efforts and shunning cattle rustling.
“I want to also urge the local leaders and the peace committee members to work with security agencies in bringing to book the few rustlers still in your midst,”said Boinett.
West Pokot Governor John Lonyangapuo was conspicuously missing during the event. This comes just a week after Turkana leaders accused him of protecting bandits.
Emanikor and Lomenen last week hit out at the Governor linking him to banditry attacks in the area.
