Tension remains high in Olposimoru on the border of Narok and Nakuru counties after one person was killed in fresh attacks fueled by cattle rustling.

Speaking to The Standard, Kuresoi South Sub County Police Commander Henry Nyaranga said three people had been taken to Olenguruone Sub County Hospital with arrows lodged in their bodies and the body of the deceased had been taken to the facility's morgue.

"The fight is in Narok but I can confirm that yesterday evening one body was brought to Olenguruone and three others with arrowheads lodged in their bodies," said Nyarangi.

Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya said that police had been deployed to quell tension in the area.

"We have deployed officers to Olposimoru to stop the reported fights supposedly triggered by an earlier incident of cattle theft," said Natembeya.

The fight broke after a Form One student who was herding cattle at Olmariko area was shot in the thigh but was lucky to sprint home and was rushed to hospital.

Olenguruone Sub County Hospital Medical Superintendent Solomon Bera said the deceased had been identified as 30-year-old Patrick Lenai.

"We have managed to remove arrows from two patients who are in stable condition. One who had been shot in the head has been referred to Nakuru Level Five Hospital," said Bera.

Several houses in Baghdad and Tegat areas were torched overnight in retaliatory attacks.
