Kimaiyo summons Wajir, Mandera Governers over clashes

23 June 2014, 18:05 William Korir

Nairobi - Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo has ordered Wajir and Mandera Governors to explain the violence that has seen 20 people killed and many more injured in Wajir.

Kimaiyo has ordered Wajir governor Ahmed Abdulahi and his Mandera counterpart Ali Roba to pen statements on the violence as soon as possible.

The two are expected to shed light on the inter-clan violence that is likely to trigger some more violence in coming weeks.

" The leaders will shed light on the ongoing clashes in the area, a statement from the IG's office Monday said.

The clashes between the Degodia and Gare communities started in mid-May and has led to more than 40 deaths in Wajir county that borders Somalia, local media reported.

The fighting was the latest in a series of revenge killings that are part of a longstanding grazing land and water dispute between the two tribes.

The latest fighting takes the number killed in the troubled district since May to at least 80 people.

Over 75,000 people have fled their homes in Wajir and neighbouring Mandera during weeks of revenge attacks, while some 60,000 more have been affected by the violence.

Hundreds of houses have been torched.

Over the weekend, Police spokesman Masoud Mwinyi said that the government would investigate whether the attacks were cased by political tensions or were the usual issues over land and pastures.

" We are investigating to see if there is any political motive for the attack, he said.
