Tuesday June 11, 2019
At least five people are admitted to the Takaba Sub-County Hospital in Mandera after sustaining injuries during clan clashes in Burmayo along the Mandera-Wajir border.
Mandera West Deputy County Commissioner Kipkoech Labatt said the injured had crossed into Wajir County in search of pasture and water for their livestock over the weekend.
“Five people are being treated at Takaba Sub-County Hospital with different injuries after they clashed over grazing fields inside Wajir but the situation is calming,” he said.
A team of peace ambassadors led by Mandera Public Service and Conflict Management CEC Ahmed Sheikh is already in the area for peace talks.
“We have a team of peace committee members from Mandera meeting their Wajir counterparts to mitigate the situation that is delicate,” said Mr Labatt.
