Death toll in Kisumu – Nandi border rises as 800 displaced
Three people have so far been killed and 800 others displaced since conflict erupted among two communities living along the Kisumu-Nandi border three days ago.
Tension is still high along the border, with women, children and the elderly fleeing their homes for fear of fresh attacks.
Locals have told Radio Citizen that most of the attacks are carried out at the wee hours of the morning, with police officers manning the area doing little to protect them.
Kisumu Governor Jack Ranguma visited the area around Achego, and asked the national government to provide enough security personnel to protect the residents.
A team of Kenya Red Cross Volunteers led by Benson Simba are in the area and currently assessing the situation to ascertain the exact number of displaced population as it responds to the emergency.
