Violence in Kitengela as Maasai demand half of market space

08 September 2015, 19:04 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - There was violence in Kitengela town as members of the Maasai community demanded half allocation of space at the local market saying the land belongs to them.

The violence took place Tuesday afternoon after the Maasai kinsmen demanded that the Kajiado County government award them half the space at the market as the land belongs to them.

The issue quickly turned on its head as a series of arguments ensued and there were isolated incidences of violence.

Police were quickly called in to stop the violence spreading.

No one was killed in the violence, with most getting away with minor injuries.

" They have taken our land and now our space at the market and we want it back," Jane Oleinane, a Maasai trader told News24.

The County government said it would seek dialogue over the matter.

" We will engage the traders over the matter and seek a welcome resolution," a statement from Governor David Nkedianye's office said.

Kitengela is located in the outskirts of Nairobi, some 35 kilometres east of the Central Business District.
