Interior CS Kithure Kindiki will be in Samburu on Friday for a joint security meeting with the leaders in the area.
The meeting will be attended by Rift Valley Regional Security, Intelligence Committee, Samburu County Security and Intelligence Committee at Longewan.
In the past few months, there has been a rise in insecurity in some parts of Samburu County.
Some 2,000 families were displaced last month due to security issues.
The displaced families moved to camps hoping for better security though they suffered due to a lack of enough food and other social amenities.
“The people are suffering. We need urgent intervention from the national government and non-governmental organizations and other well-wishers before the government restores security,” Samburu governor Lati Lelelit said during a security meeting in April.
In January, bandits killed two people and stole an unknown number of livestock in Samburu County.
"Armed gunmen stormed the area and managed to drive away a number of livestock. In the process they killed the two young men," Samburu County police commander David Wambua said.
Samburu County has been experiencing ethical conflict too.
Kindiki during his last meeting in the North Rift regretted that the gangs have continued to kill civilians and security officers.
"The intelligence has unmasked the senior commanders, spiritual leaders, political patrons and the commercial beneficiaries working with the bandits. Before long, we will be laying bare the identity of the aforementioned individuals," Kindiki said in March during a meeting in Samburu.
