CON­FLICTS QUELLED BUT LATER REIGNITED

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Rift Valley -

Last month, Kisii Gov­er­nor James Ong­wae and his Narok coun­ter­part Samuel Tu­nai promised to bring the war­ring Kisii and Kip­sigis com­mu­ni­ties to­gether. The con­flict has been quelled sev­eral times, but re­tal­ia­tory at­tacks are sparked by dis­agree­ments and stock theft. Ong­wae said even though security is a na­tional func­tion, they want to en­sure mem­bers of the Maa­sai, Kip­sigis and Kisii com­mu­ni­ties live in har­mony. Tu­nai said they are work­ing with the state to ad­dress the root cause.
