March 13th, 2019 – MARSABIT, Kenya, March 13th – At least three people were killed on Wednesday evening in a renewed tribal clashes in Haro Girisa area, Saku Sub-county.
Addressing the media on the incident assistance Police Commander in-charge of Sakuu Sub-County Benjamin Mwathi confirmed the killings and urged the residents to remain calm since the security officers have been deployed in the area to pursue the attackers.
For a period now the conflict along the border of North Horr and Saku sub-counties had claimed so many lives.
