Two killed in Kericho, Nyakach ethnic clashes

10 March 2014, 11:34 Nechesa Chemoi

Nyakach - Two people were killed and nine houses torched when clashes erupted between two communities living along Nyakach, Kericho border on Saturday.

Three people were also injured and were admitted to hospital.

Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo said the clashes erupted when 2 members of one community were allegedly accused of cattle rustling and were subjected to mob justice that killed one person.

“This resulted into tension, ultimately culminating to the retaliatory attack by members of the other community that had lost one of their own,” said Kimaiyo.

He confirmed the deaths and said officers had been dispatched in the area to help to restore peace.

 “Nine houses have been confirmed burned as well as a sizeable sugar plantation which has also been destroyed,” added Kimaiyo.

Kimaiyo directed the Deputy Inspector General, Kenya Police Service and Administration Police Service, to lead a team of senior officers on Sunday, to assess the situation in Nyakach.

He urged the local leaders to preach peace and harmony for the sake of cohesiveness and development in the area through public barazas.

He said he had also ordered a crackdown on illicit brews since the trade was a contributory factor to crime, insecurity and disharmony among the citizens.
