While speaking at the burial yesterday, leaders led by Kisii County Women Representative Hon. Dorice Donya Aburi called upon the Kisii residents to live in peace and harmony rather than killing each other. The women representative also called on the government to provide more security in the county moreso on matters of food security.

“There has been a debate on food security and I want to ask the government to also consider Kisii county in providing security to farmers, we are loosing our food and animals due to the rampant theft in the region, we are being left to fight for ourselves like we don’t have the national government to provide security” the women representative said.
