Reports of inter-communal land clashes and tensions in the region are rising fast.
Within a week in April 2016, at least five members of the Gusii, Kalenjin and Pokot communities were reported dead after the communities clashed over land ownership, although it is said that the motive was political.
“Already, there are signs of trouble in various group farms in Nakuru County. They include Ngongongeri, Ndibithi, Ngati, Kiambogo, Utheri wa Lari, Nyakinyua, Muthera, Kedong and Ndabibi ADC,” the Standard reported, as authorities in the region pleaded for quick action.
Similar reports have been made in Naivasha region that also bore the brunt of the 2007/8 post election violence. At least two people have been reported dead, as houses and property were destroyed.
