The Ministry of Interior and Coordination has deployed a contingent of GSU Officers at Olooloipanki and Oloruashi in Narok South after fresh clashes between two communities were reported – By Gerald Gekara.
According to police reports, a man instigated violence after he claimed a cow had been stolen, forcing his community to storm homesteads in the neighboring community in search of the animal.
As a result of his actions, two people were killed and three others seriously injured. He has so far been arrested.
Narok County Commissioner Samuel Kimiti, accompanied by a security committee from Narok investigated the incident, and managed to calm the warring communities.
However, the skirmishes continued after a bodaboda rider was attacked and killed while riding to Ololunga. The violence left two people dead, while another two were admitted at Kenyatta National Hospital and Narok Referral Hospital.
Area MP Korei ole Lemein plead with the two communities to stop fighting just because of one cow and urged politicians desist from inciting the communities against each other.
The officers are expected to conduct a disarmament exercise and maintain order in the affected villages.
