Tension remains high along the Nyakach-Kericho border following last night attack where ten houses were burnt on both sides.
Suspected cattle rustlers from Kalenjin invaded Holo village in Nyakach and made a way with unknown number of animals.
A young girl was speared with an arrow and is fighting for her life in a local hospital in Nyakach.
Youths from the village pursued the rustlers and a fight broke out as they recovered some animals before catching up with one of the rustler’s whom they beat and left for dead.
Several houses were torched by hungry youths as they return to their homesfrom the chase of the stolen animals.
However, some youths in Kericho got angered by the attack and crossed over to some villages in Nyakach and torched four houses in what appeared to be revenge attacks.
Nyakach police boss Dismas Wanjala says villages affected are Holo, Store Pamba and Sondu.
The area police boss says tension is very high in the area and announced that he has teamed up with his counterpart from across the border and they are addressing the issue tentatively.
A local pastor has called for peace among the two communities and urged them to stop cases of cattle rustling in the region.
“We call for the police to intensified patrol day and night to curb such cases”.
Meanwhile, Kisumu county governor Jack Ranguma and the county police commander David Ngetich have gone to the ground to meet their fellow counterparts at the border to find lasting solution to the problem.
