Two injured in fresh Njoro ethnic clashes

By Kennedy Gachuhi | August 19th 2020

At least two people have been injured with arrows in fresh ethnic flare-ups within Neissuit, Njoro.

Nakuru County Commissioner Erastus Mbui confirmed the incidents saying that the two were injured in Sigaon and Tiritagoi areas.

"We have deployed police officers to stop the clashes between two communities in the area. The two injured persons have been taken to different hospitals in the sub-county," said Mbui.

The residents, however, claim that one person was killed near Ogiek Secondary School and several houses torched in Sigaon, Tritagoi and Kware areas.

Political leaders from the area had on Tuesday protested against the multi-agency team currently demarcating the Eastern Mau Forest cutline which they accused of sidelining them.

A major security meeting was held three weeks ago at Neissuit Trading Centre following similar clashes that had left five people dead and over 80 others injured.
