The government has imposed a 6pm to 6am curfew at the Laikipia Nature Conservancy and its environs as a security operation begins to flush out illegal occupants.
The directive comes following a meeting of the National Security Council to review the security situation in parts of Laikipia County.
The CS announced that Laikipia Nature Conservancy and its environs have been immediately declared as a disturbed area and therefore a security operation zone.
The directive comes after over 150 families spent a night in the cold after arsonists torched 40 houses. Hundreds of residents fled the area which for the last two months experienced rampant insecurity despite police operations.
