More than 300 villagers who had left Suyian village, 46 kilometres north of Baragoi due to insecurity in 2015 have returned back after an Administration Police patrol base was opened in the area.
The families said they feel safe and secure after seeing regular security police patrols from friendly officers who pitched camp in one of the abandoned primary schools.
Lolochu Leadaro said that the police officers have restored security in the area and have been of great help to the community in helping resettle again.
Leadaro added that the police officers take them to the water points where they take their animals to quench their thirst and offer security incase an enemy emerges from the nearby bushes.
The officer in charge of the police patrol base at Suyan, only identified as Inspector Cheruyuoit said the officers deployed in the area are cooperating with the community and their colleagues from Marti and Baragoi areas to ensure there is security in the area.
However the families are calling upon the county government to provide them with a source of water since they travel for long distances in search of domestic water.
They said that they are currently sharing water points with their livestock where they have set aside a day for their livestock to drink water and a day for all the families to fetch drinking and cooking water.
The residents said that after resettling in the area they were forced to dig several water points in a dried river.
The residents are calling upon national government to build modern houses for the police officers so that they can provide better services.
The whole community fled Suyian area to Barsaloi town in 2015 due to high tension following an attack that left two people dead after herders from two communities living in the region clashed over pasture and livestock.
