A peace treaty has been reached between warring communities living at Olposimoru area in Narok County after a peace meeting that was held today (Thursday) resolved to end atrocities that left two people dead last week.

While leading the meeting, Narok Governor Samuel Kuntai Ole Tunai promised that his county government will help rebuild houses for the over 500 families displaced by the clashes which are believed to have started after incidents of cattle rustling in the area.

During the peace meeting it was also agreed that a police post be established at Olposimoru area and two chief camps be set up to serve the Maasai and Kalenjin communities in the area.

On Sunday, the National Government imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew to help restore normalcy in the area.

Interior Security Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaiserry who visited the area also put on notice security forces in the area saying any of them found on the wrong would be “fired immediately”.

The Interior CS also added that police are investigating claims of incitement by local leaders and assured residents that justice would be served without fear or favour.

“Any leader found to have incited the communities into violence will not be spared,” said the tough-speaking CS.
