Former Baringo Central MP, Mr Gideon Moi, has asked the Government to arrest perpetrators of violence.
Moi said the perpetrators are known and the Government should be firm in dealing with them to ensure that the violence did not recur.
“The culprits must be apprehended and prosecuted so that the country can be at peace,” he said.
The former MP spoke at Kongoy farm in Elementaita, where more than 400 displaced people are camping. He said violence should not be condoned and that law and order must be enforced regardless of the political affiliation of the sponsors of the violence.
“They are known and action should be taken against them irrespective of who they are,” he said.
Moi, accompanied by his wife, Zahra, donated food and other items to the displaced.
Meanwhile, the Kenya Red Cross (KRC) has appealed for blood donation to assist victims of post-election violence.
In a statement to newsrooms, KRC Secretary General, Mr Abbas Gullet warned of a looming crisis as the number of the injured increased.
