Four people nursing arrow-wounds as clashes rock Narok

Four people are nursing wounds  at various  hospitals in Nakuru with arrows lodged in their bodies.

One has been referred to Nakuru Referral Hospital while the other three are being treated at Olenguruone Sub County Hospital.

This is after they were shot during ethnic conflicts over pasture in Olposimoru along the Nakuru-Narok border.

It is reported that  several others were injured and houses torched when the communities living in the area clashed over pasture in Mau Forest Complex.

This even as tension is still high in Olposimoru, Narok North sub county due to ethnic clashes that have continued to be witnessed in the area for more than a decade.

One of the victims, a man, was first attended at Olenguruone sub-county hospital before being transferred to Nakuru PGH hospital for specialized treatment.

The other three are awaiting surgery at Olenguruone to remove arrows lodged in their bodies.

According to Olposimoru Assistant Chief Jackline Kool, local administration has been trying to contain the situation since Sunday.

“Administration in the area is trying to reach a  meeting solution.A recent meeting to find a solution to the pasture feuds that escalate to all out tribal conflicts bore no fruits” he said.

Kuresoi South Deputy County Commissioner Patrick Mwangi said security personnel from Nakuru have been dispatched to enhance security along the border of Nakuru and Narok counties.

This is aimed at averting a spillover of the chaos.
