I/CTension is high in Lugari Kakamega county following attacks that have left atleast 15 houses burnt and property worth in identified amount destroyed. The literiotory attack is said to have been carried out by a group of youth to revenge the alleged killing of a man by the residents.
Locals now want the national and county government to beef up security so as to prevent a repeat attack. Speaking to us, one of the ladies who is victim has narrated how it all happened " Nikaona watu wengi wamejaa, nikaona wamebeba matawi juu, wanaimba wanashangilia sijui ni nini, kufika kwa ploti wakaanza kusema tumefika! Tumefika, ni ni katika nikasimama pale, ndio wakaanza kuchoma manyumba".
It's alleged that they have burnt the houses of anyone who was either a friend, knew or went to church with the deceased. It is yet to be confermed who the men were but authorities have promised to investigate.
