    KENYA: Deaths, displacement in Isiolo fighting

    ISIOLO, 28 December 2011 (IRIN) - Fighting between communities over grazing land in northern Kenya's Isiolo region has led to at least 10 deaths and the displacement of some 2,000 people in the past three days, according to local leaders and residents.

    The fighting, mainly between the members of the Turkana and Somali communities, with some Borana siding with the Somalis, has disrupted transport and trade networks and hampered access to farms and communal grazing areas.

    The camel milk trade has been affected, with traders who take the milk to Nairobi daily unable to access grazing fields. Residents have also reported a shortage of charcoal due to lack of access to trading centres.

    The areas most affected by the fighting are Burat, Mulango, Kilimani and Kampi ya Juu, all in Isiolo central division. A similar conflict, involving the Gabra and Borana communities in Moyale, near the Ethiopia-Kenya border, recently displaced several thousands of people.

    At a funeral in Isiolo's Kambi Oda cemetery on 26 December, Mohamed Kuti, the minister for livestock production, said those fuelling the fighting should be arrested and those with guns disarmed. According to police sources, no arrests have been made so far.

    "These clashes must be brought to an end immediately. Many lives have been lost; many people have abandoned their homes. Security officials, the entire [district] security committee team must be moved and punished for failing to do its work," Kuti said.

    Residents of the affected areas told IRIN tension remains high as more families continue to flee - most of them to Isiolo town - fearing more attacks. Some 2,000 members of the Turkana community are reported to have arrived in the town in recent days.

    Isiolo has seen an escalation in violence since October 2010, with analysts pointing to the town's planned economic expansion as well as elections due in 2012 as key drivers of conflict.

    Zinatolewa Somalia na Ethiopia na Sudan kusini , nchi ambazo zimekuwa katika vita miaka mingi, na kupelekea Kenya mzigo kubwa wa silaha haramu kuingizwa mipaka yake na nchi hizi za aibu...a big burden for Kenya thats why Kenya is acting in Somalia now.

    Hiyo ni staili yao ya mavazi na maumbile pia mazoezi ya kila siku kwa vita zao, kwani ukimuona mmasai na shuka lake pia katambuga utasema amechoka?
