I am wondering what people that are supposed to be taking care of their cattles are now roaming with these kind of weapons herdsmen.
I hope the appropriate authorities will do a proper investigation about the suspects and know their mission. If indeed they are responsible for the killing that is happening in the country, they should be prosecuted.
