According to Mariakani police boss, Kennedy Osando, the fight began when farmers confronted a group of herders at the maize plantation.

Mr Osando said a security meeting held after the clashes resolved that all the animals be flushed out of the farm to avert more killings.

Hundreds of animals were first detained at Mariakani Police Station before being released to their owners who were ordered to move them out of the area.

Police have launched patrols in the area to keep the herders out.

The incident happened days after two other people were seriously injured in Lunga lunga, Kwale county, in a similar clash between herders and farmers.
