House torched in new ethnic clashes in Narok county

09 August 2016, 07:43

Narok - Several houses were on Sunday night set ablaze by arsonists in Pimbinyiet sub-location, Narok County, escalating tension between members of two neighbouring communities.

The houses were torched hours after police officers bumped on a mutilated body of a boda boda operator that had been dumped at a nearby forest in Oronkai location.

Police said on Monday that the motorcyclist’s who happen to come from one of the communities had deep wounds.

It is alleged that he was murdered in a revenge attack by members of the other community following the killing of one of their members about a week ago.

More than five people have lost their lives in retaliatory attacks between youths from the two communities. Area chief Leboi Ole Munke said the man's body was discovered on Sunday morning.

“His body was in bad shape. It appears he was hacked several times,” said Mr Munke.

“His colleague was saved on Saturday night after sustaining serious panga cuts in the attack. He was rushed to Tenwek mission hospital in Bomet County, where he is recuperating,” added the administrator.

It is reported that as soon as the body was picked up by police officers from Kilgoris police station, fierce brawl broke out, with more than 20 houses put on flames.

The residents of the affected village have so far fled their homes for the fear of victimisation.
