The ongoing Turkana siege, where over 600 people have been taken hostage due to continued cattle rustling dispute has made government officials to think of ways to curb cattle rustling and one solution is ICT.
Joseph Kaguthi who is the Chairman of the National task force on community policing has urged the counties to use GPS tracking system to track cattle that are stolen.
“What is the problem in getting small chips in each of those animals such that you can see the position of all those who stole them. The police will also intercept them and this will bring an end to the current state of affairs in the region,” he said.
According to Capital FM, Kaguthi said that such a technology would reduce incidences of cattle rustling as the police could easily track stolen cattle to their exact location and arrest perpetrators.
