More than 15 people are nursing arrow-inflicted wounds in Kilgoris and Kisii hospitals after renewed clashes at the border of Enooretet and Nkararo sub-locations in Trans Mara.

Police have been forced to intervene and disperse the two fighting groups who had attacked each other with bows and arrows since 6am.

Two people were arrested.

Locals who spoke to Citizen Digital allege that at the center of the dispute between the Sirisia and Uasin Gishu clans is a piece of land.

More police officers have been deployed to calm rising tension.

In August last year, at least 15 people were injured following fresh inter-community clashes in Trans Mara.

Confirming the incident, Narok County Commissioner George Natembeya said the dispute involved members of Iruasi Ngishu sub-clan and Siria Sub-clan who are feuding over land.

“We are going to sort out the land problem by tomorrow (Wednesday). I have instructed the land registrar to produce the map so that we can have this issue resolved,” Natembeya said at the time.
