cattle rustling was becoming rampant and cited a recent incident where a
drinking bar in the area was robbed at gun point.

custodian of land, the Tindaana, were ready to offer land for the construction
of a Police Post and also provide accommodation for the police personnel who
would be sent there to work.

the area to connect the seven communities under Gowire with pipe –borne water.
The said communities are Yorogo, Zaare,
Nyariga, Vea, Zoko, Balungu and Gowrie.
