Following the head of state's directive, the National Police Service has deployed a multi-agency team to recover the stolen cattle and bring the suspects to book.
The officials included eight police officers, a Chief and a woman.
The woman killed in the ambush was former Samburu county executive for health Mary Kanyaman, a sister to Thirdway Alliance party leader Ekuru Aukot.
She was leading the officers to recover stolen livestock belonging to her father.
The bodies of the officers killed in Saturday's bandit attack in Turkana East arrived in Nairobi Sunday evening. They were flown in a police chopper to the Wilson Airport and taken to Forces Memorial Hospital mortuary, Nairobi.
The victims were ambushed as they pursued heavily armed bandits suspected to be from the neighbouring Baringo county.
They were pursuing the heavily armed bandits who had attacked Ngikengoi village in Elelea sublocation, Katilia ward and made away with livestock.
