Speaking on behalf of the their group in Nakuru town today, Daniel Rotich Kindagor who is the chairman of the group said that, the two communities that engaged each other into war should shun violence as that will result into lost of lives bearing in mind this is an election year. Instead, Kindagor urged the local communities to embrace peace and love in order to subsist in harmony.

Kindagor went on to add that their group is more united on the ground and that they are against all forms of theft and violence that could be going on in that area, urging the government to increase police personnel’s in the area, in order to avoid feature clashes that took place last Friday.
