1 Killed By Cattle Rustlers In Turkana

The raiders stole an unknown number of cattle during the raid.

 

The attack occured barely a week after another in the same village.

 

Several villagers were injured during the attack.

 

Loima Sub-County administrator, Titus Ekiru said the attacks are being an impediment to development in the area.

 

“Last week, we hosted two feuding communities but they have continued to fight" said Ekiru

 

Local residents said there was a fierce battle between the two communities, Pokots and Turkana leading to the death of one person.

 

The residents fear that 5 herders who are still missing could have been abducted by the attackers.

 

“We went to fight  them. They were so many and overpowered us so we retreated but we found family members have fled in fear.” said a resident.

 

Local authorities fear that the attackers could have crossed over to rocky mountainous parts of West Pokot.
