Tension high as two groups clash

By | August 29th 2010

Tension is high at in Lwandayi village at the border of Mt Elgon and Bungoma following clashes that erupted between two communities.

Trouble began on Friday when a man was killed as he was going to Lwandayi market.

Villagers said the deceased was on his way to the market when a man attacked him, hitting him with a club before he died.

The killing prompted members of the deceased’s community to make a retaliatory attack, burning four houses, and injuring three men.

Police moved in yesterday as tension intensified and arrested one person before calm was restored.
