Kenya News Alert

Inter-clan violence leaves four people dead, three others seriously wounded in Wajir county; further violence possible

TIMEFRAME expected from 11/10/2018, 12:00 AM until 11/16/2018, 11:59 PM (Africa/Nairobi). COUNTRY/REGION Wajir


Retaliatory violence between two clans in Wajir county has left four people dead in two separate attacks on Wednesday, November 7, and Thursday, November 8. The clashes occurred in Giriftu over a water well and resulted in the deaths of four people and left three others wounded. The Wajir county commission deployed additional security personnel to the area while clan leaders are demanding justice for the continued violence. Further attacks in the area cannot be ruled out.


Individuals in the affected areas should remain vigilant, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments, and anticipate an increased security presence. Many Western governments advise against nonessential travel to the Somali border region, including areas of Wajir, due to the risk of terrorism, violence, and kidnapping.
