The President disclosed this during an interview with Arise Television.
“We have given the police and the military the power to be ruthless. You watch it in a few weeks’ time there will be difference.
“If you allow hunger, the government is going to be in trouble and we don’t want to be in trouble. We are already in enough trouble. So we warn them sooner than later you’ll see the difference,” he assured.
Speaking on dealing with farmers/herders clashes, the President said the problem had persisted because old cattle routes and grazing areas had been violated by development, adding those who had taken over such traditional arrangements would be dispossessed.
