A select committee on the Nkararo-Enooretet boundary dispute in Trans Mara will table its findings in two weeks’ time, Narok County Governor Patrick Ole Ntutu has said.
Ntutu, who visited the region together with members of the Committee and the Narok county security team led by County Commissioner Isaac Masinde, was optimistic that the expected report, with full recommendations, would help unlock a lasting solution to the dispute, which has for many decades caused conflicts between the neighbouring Siria and Uasin Ngishu communities.
In the past weeks, the region has witnessed increased cases of insecurity, where hundreds of people have been displaced and several acres of cane and houses have been torched.
The on-goings attracted the attention of the Interior and National Administration Cabinet Secretary, Prof. Kithure Kindiki, who visited the region and commissioned a General Service Unit Camp to ensure increased security surveillance. The move seems to have paid off, as cases of insecurity have since dropped.
CC Masinde said the government would readily adopt the full recommendations of the committee so long as it would help yield lasting peace and urged all to support the committee to achieve set objectives.
