We have started investigation to establish what happened,\u201d said Wafula. Baringo Governor Stanley Kiptis asked the police to speedily investigate the incident and bring those behind the deaths to book. Stomach pains \u201cI need to appeal to the investigative agencies to work with speed and ensure all those behind the poisoning are apprehended and charged,\u201d said Kiptis.
