The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy has condemned brutal murder of the parents of Nyakach Member of Parliament Aduma Owuor.
The Coalition termed the incident unfortunate linking it to the MPs continued war against cattle rustling in the area.
“We are informed that arsonists who are believed to be cattle rustlers from the neighborhood were on revenge mission following Aduma's hard stand on the vice and attacked his homestead, hacked his mother to death and torched the house burning his father beyond recognition,” said CORD.
“It will be recalled that three months ago Mr. Aduma protested at the escalating cases of insecurity in his constituency but was instead charged in court for incitement.”
“The government must take pleas by elected leaders seriously and stop treating them as mere gimmicks to gain political mileage.”
Aduma has been on the warpath against cattle rustling, which is rampant in the area and his effort to restore security for his constituents has cost him dearly, robbing him of his dear parents and causing wanton destruction to property.
CORD urged the government to ensure security for all its citizens especially in crime prone areas, flush out criminal elements and subject them to the full force of the law.
