TWO COM­MU­NI­TIES CLASH

The Star (Kenya) - - News -

Two com­mu­ni­ties in Kosovo, Naivasha, have clashed over a par­cel of land. Mem­bers of the Maa­sai and Kalen­jin com­mu­ni­ties quar­relled over the land, which be­longs to the ADC. Speak­ing on the phone, Naivasha as­sis­tant county com­mis­sioner John Opondo said the sit­u­a­tion has been con­tained. “We have in­ten­si­fied se­cu­rity af­ter the clash be­tween the two com­mu­ni­ties and things are back to nor­mal, but we are not tak­ing chances,” Opondo said.

Mean­while, po­lice in Naivasha are hold­ing three chil­dren, who al­legedly broke into a bet­ting shop and made away with all the day’s col­lec­tions. The chil­dren aged be­low 16, broke into the shop in Ka­bati es­tate and made off with Sh3,500 and var­i­ous items.

They are said to have bro­ken into the shop on Wed­nes­day night, but were ar­rested a few hours later. Wit­ness James Wambugu said the chil­dren went in through a win­dow. An of­fi­cer, who did not want to be named, said they re­cov­ered some of the stolen items, in­clud­ing cash, and the chil­dren have con­fessed to the break-in.
