Gunmen have turned Kapedo, Baringo County into a war zone after killing two police officers yet in another ambush on Thursday evening.
The gunmen opened fire on the Head of Rapid Deployment Unit who is also the chief inspector in Kapedo and his driver who were in a convoy of three vehicles at a bridge marking as a boundary between Turkana and Baringo Counties.
The officers were on the way from Nakuru with food for other colleagues in a camp in the area when they came under attack at about 4pm.
Also in the convoy was a landcruiser and a Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle when the attack happened.
The gunmen sprayed bullets from both sides targeting both the driver and the chief inspector.
They both jumped out and engaged the gunmen with wounds but lost the fight inside a nearby bush.
The other officers who were in the MRAP engaged the gang in a shootout before they retreated into caves.
Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya termed the incident as unfortunate given the senior officer had just returned from burying his mother.
“We will soldier on but it is unfortunate because one of the officers had just returned from the funeral of his mother,” he said.
