One person has been killed with five other sustaining serious injuries after tribal clashes erupted along the Nandi-Kakamega border over a land dispute.
Trouble began when two families in Kataniin village, Nandi North, disagreed over a piece of land. This disagreement between Patrick Angasi and Samuel Rono later escalated into a tribal clash.

Police officers from Kufasali police post tried to quell the fight but were overwhelmed forcing them to call for reinforcement from Malava Police station.
