Cattle rustling and banditry has been a common occurrence along the Pokot/ Marakwet border, which has been a huge hindrance to development.
Diversifying trade activities is critical in resolving border conflicts and bring about peaceful coexistence.

 
 


During the official opening of Chamaley Market in Lomut Ward, The Deputy Governor Dr Nicholas Atudonyang who was accompanied by CECM Francis Kitelauyan, CO Alex Lokimoi among other government officials said that the mandate of the current administration is to ensure that all locals remain economically stable. He added that the County Government is on its path to transforming the life of every resident of this county.
“I’m here today on a peace mission. We all seek peace and we will only achieve it through cross-border trade. We want peace to prevail and that is why on Monday, we shall have CS Fred Matiang’I at Chesogon.” He said.

 
 


Dr Atudonyang however urged leaders to keep off politics when it comes to matters of development.
He also held talks with KPRs and assured them of the governments’ support. He urged them to maintain order along the border so that the communities from both sides can coexist peacefully.
CECM Francis Kitelauyan pointed out the need to concentrate on trading ventures as an alternative to the constant raids. “It is unfortunate that we have lost our people and business activities due to insecurity. We hope that opening of markets will lead to stability, jobs and revenue.”

 
 


Chief Officer, Trade and Industry- Alex Lokimoi echoed the deputy governor’s sentiments saying that his ministry will concentrate on trade as a way of opening up the rest of the county.
“Department of Trade will provide loans any other business incentives to help our people be economically stable. For now, register your groups so that you can be able to apply for loans.”
He added that locals from Chamaley will benefit from any job opportunities, as has been the case with other markets around the county.
The Deputy Governor gave out 200 bags of maize to 20 schools in Lomut ward, while the rest was distributed among the KPRs guarding the border and the locals.
