National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) has said it has put measures in place to eradicate possible tribal clashes along the borders in Nandi County.
There have been perennial clashes along Nandi-Kisumu and Nandi-Kakamega borders. The latest incident was in Nandi kakamega where three people died from the clashes.
“We have initiated peace making programs to reach out to people living in cosmopolitan zones along the borders. We have engaged social and political groups and got critical issues that require attention,” said NCIC commissioner Engineer Philip Okundi.
Okundi was speaking when he met with journalists and bloggers in Kapsabet during a fact finding mission by the commission.
Okundi blamed politics for chaos in Nandi region and the surrounding areas and asked politicians to stop inciting people against each other.
“As the only institution tasked to tame hate mongers, we are appealing for the members of the public and the opinion leaders to assist us in identifying the culprits to pave way for the prosecution of those found capable,” Said NCIC commissioner Dorgas Kedogo.
The commissioners said they were working with stakeholders to ensure cases of ethnic clashes in the region were a thing of the past.
