Leaders push for talks after Nyakach-Kericho border clashes

13 March 2014, 08:14 Chepkwony Robert

Kericho - Local leaders in Nyakach and Kericho West sub-counties say plans are underway to ensure that normalcy returns at their border following the attacks that left at least six people dead.

Kericho West sub county administrator Jamleck Mbuba who has been in the forefront in bringing the conflict to ceasefire told News24 Kenya that strategies are being put in place to kick start the process.

“We have witnessed a ceasefire but we as a government will not take issues lightly and that is why we still have a good number of security personnel patrolling the area. We will select a working group involving the district peace committees, the cross-border committee, the elders and religious leaders to seek ways of solving the conflict once the residents return to their homes,” said Mbuba.

At the same time, Mbuba disclosed that learning had resumed in some schools although the learners attendance was still low.

A visit at Holo secondary school situated in the Nyakach sub-county accommodating students from both the tribes indicated that there were students continuing with learning although most of them are boarders.

“Clashes began when our students were sitting for their exam but we had to stop it for security purposes. When the matter persisted, some of the parents came for their children and we as administration also were forced to retain some of the day scholars,” said Moses Owino, the school’s deputy principal.

A visit at nearby primary school, Kamlok Primary School witnessed presence of just 16 pupils out of the total number which is 248 having attended school on Tuesday.

However, residents who spoke to News24 Kenya said they want peaceful coexistence, and that there was an urgent need for the political leaders and administration in the area to come up with ways to hold peace talks between the conflicting communities.
