Somali pastoralists urged to produce assailants who attacked two Maasais

30 January 2015, 10:33 John Kioko

Kinango, Kwale - The government has asked Somali pastoralists in Kinango to produce assailants who attacked two Maasais on Monday.

Kinango deputy county commissioner, Moses Ivuto said they have met representatives of the two pastoralist communities and agreed on the matter.

Speaking to journalists in Kwale on Thursday, Ivuto said that the two Maasais were injured and taken to Kinango Hospital.

Ivuto said the attack was uncalled for because the victims were unarmed.

“We have met their representatives and agreed that they produce those behind the attack,” said Ivuto.

Ivuto said the two victims were repairing their motorcycle at Uwanja wa Ndege when they were attacked by Somali morans who were patrolling the ranch.

It is claimed that the two were from LungaLunga and might have by mistake crossed over to the disputed Kuranze ranch.

A peace accord signed by the two communities restricted any of the two from crossing over to each other’s land.

He added that the two communities also agreed to select peace ambassadors who will be solving issues arising among them.

“So far, there is no problem and everything is being sorted out peacefully,” said Ivuto.

The government has previously claimed that the Maasaia were not happy about the Somalis leasing the Kuranze ranch since they have been living there for a long time.
