Victims

Those who were injured in the clashes are recuperating at health facilities in the county. Officers took the body of the deceased to the Egerton mortuary.

One victim of the attack who is nursing his injuries at Elburgon Hospital narrated his experience. He said that a group of about 10 men were hiding in the maize plantation before the attack.

“I heard people screaming at around 7am. As I responded to the distress calls, I saw a group of armed youths who shot me in the left thigh,” he said.

He also said that after the attack, the men ran back into the maize plantation and disappeared.

Ms. Irungu, the doctor attending to the victim, said that he was out of danger.

We have treated and referred him to Nakuru Level Five Hospital for further treatment as the arrow was still lodged in his body. He needed X-ray services,” she said.

Another victim from Kamnoso village also said that the same people had attacked him as he was working at a farm. He said that he had managed to removed the arrow but was still in a lot of pain.

A 29-year old victim from Lawina village also suffered injuries to his ear caused by an arrow. He explained that he was walking with his friends when the attackers attacked them.

Tightened Security
