Tension has gripped Kom area in Isiolo County following Sunday clashes that left 10 people and 20 cows dead.

The fierce gun fight over grazing land between Borana and Samburu herders also left one injured.


By mid Monday, some of the pastoralists from Samburu and Borana communities were yet to collect bodies of their colleagues who were killed for burial or preservation in the mortuary.

Some of the 20 cattle that were shot dead were still lying at the battle field, about 100 kilometres from Isiolo town.

Merti Deputy County Commissioner Julius Maiyo told the Nation that the herders could not access the area to collect the bodies due to fear of revenge attacks.
