Violent clash broke out yesterday evening in Moyale town between the Garre and Burji communities.
The confrontation occurred in Biashara Street area and significantly disrupted commercial activity in Moyale town.
The conflict is believed to have been caused by personal differences that erupted between Moyale Township MCA Suleiman Khalifa and rowdy boda boda operators.
The MCA is allegedly beaten up and hurt by the boda boda operators.
However, the police arrived to calm the situation but so far the situation remains of concern in Biashara Street.
Following the clashes there will be a peace meeting today between the elders from all communities in Moyale and 35 peace elders who will spearhead peaceful settlement of the issue.
