Maasai: 15 People Injured in Clashes Between the Maasai and the Kipsigis Communities
Chaos erupted after raiders set two houses on fire at the boundary of the two districts.
Members of the Maasai community living in Trans Mara were forced to flee their homes after raiders, chanting war slogans, invaded the area.
Armed with arrows and spears, the raiders attacked and injured the 15 before two policemen fought hard to disperse them.
Area District Commissioner Julius Mathenge warned the locals against attacking each other.
Mathenge said all those injured were taken to hospitals in the two districts. He denied claims that two people had been killed.
Mathenge said the Government would issue title deeds to rightful landowners at the boundary when the adjudication process is complete.
The clashes between the two tribes were allegedly triggered by a group of herders who encroached on idle land on the boundary.
Councillor Kimojino ole Nasheiki appealed to National Security minister John Michuki to help end the skirmishes.
