Tension High Along Kericho-Kisumu Border as New 'Conflict' Emerges

Tension is high at the border of Kericho county and Kisumu county among traders after Kisumu county revenue officers allegedly crossed the border to Kericho side to collect revenue. The traders have raised concerns on who or which county they should be responsible for.

They claim that they are now confused as they have been paying to Kericho county since but Kisumu county took over in 2021.

Kericho member of county assembly Paul Chirchir alias Tarimbo has accused Kisumu county governor Anyang Nyongo of invading their county and illegally collecting revenues .

"Kisumu County Governor Anyang Nyong Why is your County illegally and Unlawfully Collecting Revenue in Sondu on the side of Kericho County? ," Chirchir said 

Sondu town is a fragile town as a conflict between the two neighboring communities goes into frequent conflicts due to cattle theft, tribal conflicts among other reasons. The new counter-accusations could escalate if not quickly addressed by the two counties.

"This may result in border disputes lets be cautious at times for the sake of peace between the two counties. It should be handle in a proper manner," Langat said .
