On Monday last week, one person was killed and seven others, among them a police officer, injured after rival traders clashed in Narok town.

The clash, which left twelve other suspects arrested, was as a result of demonstrations at Uhuru market over the alleged destruction of kiosks by the Narok County government.

The enraged Uhuru market traders then, in retaliation, set ablaze Muthurwa Market in Majengo estate, prompting police officers on scene to intervene and fire in the air to disperse them.
