Kisumu Governor Prof Anyang Nyong’o has condemned night attacks in Sondu market which have left three dead.
In a statement, Nyong’o termed the attacks as unfortunate, coming at a time when President William Ruto is scheduled to tour the Nyanza region.
“It is very unfortunate that on the eve of the President’s visit to our region, some upstarts last night instigated ethnic clashes in Sondu, along the Kisumu-Kericho border,” Nyong’o said.
“It is reported that last night, gangs armed with bows and arrows crossed over the border from Kericho to attack residents in and around Sondu markert, stealing cattle and killing three people. We condemn this barbaric behaviour and call upon the national government to swiftly apprehend the criminals and ensure justice is done to the affected families.”
Several people were injured during the night attack with a house torched by the attackers.
The attack happened in East Kadiang’a Location in Upper Nyakach Division.
