Narok South Sub-County Commissioner Felix Kisalu said that the clashes erupted after a cow was stolen from Oloruasi village.

General Service Unit officers have been dispatched to the area to end the violence.

“We are pursuing the culprit and we are asking both sides to stop the fighting and leave the matter to the police. Fighting will not solve anything,” said Mr Kisalu.

Preliminary investigations by the police indicated that the cow was stolen by the son of the owner, who later sold it.

Police are tracing the culprits.
