NCIC holds meeting to end Nandi-Luhya ethnic conflict

03 February 2015, 11:23 Nechesa Chemoi

Kakamega - The National Cohesion for Integration Commission (NCIC) has moved in to solve the conflict involving two communities living at the Kabras-Nandi border.

The commission held a cross border meeting between the Nandi of Nandi County and Luhya of Kakamega County to establish the root cause of the violence that persisted especially after the torching of houses in December, 2014.

“It emerged that the killing of a Nandi man by his Luhya friend which was an individual crime, caused by a deal gone sour after a criminal partnership, escalated to the criminalization of the Luhya community,” NCIC said in a statement.

It was also revealed politicians are a problem due to their public utterances that cause animosity amongst the neighboring communities.

“There is a need to balance the ethnic composition of the security officers who are posted in the areas of Nandi and Kakamega counties as this affects and influence action towards criminal activity and the boarder should be well demarcated to ascertain where Nandi County begins and to guard against the encroachment of Nandi County by the Luhya people of Kakamega County,” NCIC added.

The commission resolved to carry out an Ethnic Audit of the security agencies of Nandi and Kakamega and the entire security system hold a meeting with the National Police Service Commission to deliberate on diversity in the recruitment and posting of security officers.

In addition, a Public Baraza will be organized with members of the two communities at the border point to address the border conflict among other issues affecting harmonious co-existence.

NCIC said it remains focused on its mandate to realize a peaceful, harmonious and integrated Kenyan society, a task which can only be realized if all Kenyans agree to move in the same direction.
