Interior Cabinet Fred Matiang’i has ordered for cross border meetings between Kenya and Ethiopia in the latest bid to find peace in Marsabit.

The CS said he will also meet both political and religious leaders when he visits the county. The conflicts have so far claimed 40 lives since September last year.

Matiang’i said he will prioritise the non-partisan involvement of community elders and spiritual leaders as part of a resolution mechanism.

“This is a vital duty that should not be delegated to junior officers. I will direct the principal administrative secretary to ensure that this happens,” he said.
