This is not the first time Tindiret in Nandi county is hitting the headlines for the wrong reasons. Earlier this year, a 17-year-old minor from Kaptumek village, Tinderet Sub County in Nandi County was reported to have been defiled and impregnated by her father.
The standard seven dropout whose mother passed on in 2001 was left with her father who took advantage of her innocence. She claimed that local leaders including area Sub Chief who was supposed to help had ignored her plight.
This comes at a time the leaders from the North Rift region are crying foul over the rising number of insecurity cases in the region. The leaders lead by Kipchumba Murkomen and Oscar Sudi have blamed the government for allegedly eating their own people.
A research report released on April on placed the North Rift town of Eldoret as the worst crime hotspot in the country with the highest number of murder and crime cases in Kenya.
Even as this happens, three Firearms and several ammunitions that were recently stolen from Administration Police Camp in Nandi South while the officers were watching UEFA champions league match, were this month recovered in Langas Eldoret following an intelligence-based operation led by DCI detectives.
