According to the commissioner, the decision to temporarily closed the cattle markets (Kara) was taken during the State Security Council Meeting held last Thursday,  was as a result of the nefarious activities of selling and loading of rustled cattles by the suspected members of armed bandits.

The council further assured the general public and other relevant stakeholders commitment in monitoring and reviewing the progress with a view to restore peace in the affected cattles market areas.
