Community elders based in Bubisa, Marsabit county, Eastern Kenya, on Friday morning surrendered 3 firearms to security officers based in Turbi.
Through the area chief Joseph Jirm, the elders surrendered two Ak-47 assault rifles and a G3 rifle, heeding a call by the government to the warring communities in the area to embrace peace as the surest way of assuring sustainable development.
The sub-county security team comprising of police, DCI and National government officers welcomed the move and urged other elders to emulate the good example set by their Bubisa counterparts.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
