Members of Parliament from the warring communities of Pokot and Turkana have come together to reconcile their communities and preach peace.
Led by Turkana South Mp James Lomenen the Mps said they would not support any criminal activities, saying they will turn criminals over to the authorities.
Kapenguria Mp Samuel said that leaders from both communities should come together and openly discuss issues of cattle rustling between the communities.
The legislators criticized the National Government for failing to criminalize cattle rustling.
The Mps asked the government to stop members of the Pokot community who cross over from Uganda to escape disarmament exercises in their country.
The MPs said the Pokots from Uganda were increasing cattle rustling in the Turkana and Pokot areas.
The Mps advised both communities to brand their animals and asked local leaders to hold frequent meetings to dialogue and discourage rustling.
The MPs are now appealing to the government to recruit more Police Reservists to minimize cross border conflict along the Kenya Uganda border.
