Politicians behind Narok clashes to be investigated
28 December 2015, 11:20
Narok - Police are investigating politicians from the Kipsigis and Maasai communities suspected to have been behind the clashes pitting the two communities in Narok.
Internal security cabinet secretary Joseph Nkaissery said that any politician found to have in anyway been behind the clashes will face the full force of the law.
Speaking Sunday at Olengurone when he led a government delegation to assess the security situation in the area, Nkaissery said that the government will not spare any politician inciting violence among the Kipsigis and Maasai communities.
"We are looking into this issue to see if any politician has a hand in it and we will take action where necessary," said the CS.
Violence broke out on Christmas day after two Maasai herders were killed by people suspected to be from the Kipsigis community.
The government has since imposed a 6pm to 6am curfew in the area.
Nkaissery was accompanied by his energy counterpart Charles Keter and Inspector General of police Joseph Boinnet.
