The Cabinet Secretary for Interior, CS Fred Matiang'i recently met leaders from the fighting communities and helped broker a peace deal.

Today, however, it's reported that six people have been shot dead while they were on their way to a market. The incident happened this morning according to the National Police Service Portal.

The three people were shot at a place known as Chesegon on the Aporllo-Chesegon Road in the County of West Pokot.

It's still unclear as to the motive of the gunmen who escaped the scene after commiting the heinous crime earlier today.

The bodies of the three people have been moved to the mortuary as investigations commence into the shooting of the three under unclear circumstances.

Tensions have been escalating in the area and it's about time that the government disarms and helps these communities live in peace around this area.
