It was an emotional moment at the parliament building where the committee on appointment was interrogating Cabinet Secretary for interior nominee Kithure Kindiki.
A sombre mood of sorts sprouted after Samburu West MP Naisula Lesuuda, who is a member of the committee, took her turn to ask Kindiki how he will tackle the insecurity challenge in the Rift Valley region.
In her presentation, Naisula between tears narrated how attack after attack left many of residents dead with the government doing, she says, literally nothing to salvage the situation.

She explained that an attack occurred in her area Tuesday (Today) morning where some residents were killed and their livestock stolen.
The MP said the government has for years neglected the region and left them under the mercy of God.
They say many have been forced to contend with the difficult situation of the State only acting when police officers are killed.
Kindiki in a rejoinder pledged to deal with cattle rustling once he takes over the office.
He said even if it will take him going to leave the rift valley region, he will ensure the region is pacified and the region so that residents can have peace.
