Two people have died as a result of inter-clan fighting in Rhamu, Mandera county, Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo has said.

Five others are admitted at Rhamu and Mandera district hospitals as a result of the violence.

A statement read by police spokeswoman Gatiria Mboroki yesterday said one house was torched in the latest clash between the Garreh and Degodia clans.

Some 300 people have been displaced from their homes as a result of the chaos, which started on Sunday.

The victims have taken refuge at the Rhamu police station and subcounty commander’s offices.

Police have arrested five suspects and recovered an AK47 riffle.

Mboroki was non-committal on what action the government will take on political leaders accused of fanning the fight.

She said leaders from the two clans should dialogue.
