Two separate attacks by cattle rustlers in Northern Kenya have taken the lives of twelve.
The attack occurred in two villages in Kenya’s Marsabit County, near the border with Ethiopia. The cattle rustlers are allegedly from the Borana ethnic group.
The attackers killed five men, and seriously injured three others. After that they took around five hundred cattle.
Similarly, the second attack claimed seven lives, four adults and three children, injuring five others said Police.
The raids are mainly targeted on cattle breeders from the Gabra ethnic group. This is because they have been long-time rivals of the Borana for many years.
Police are currently pursuing the criminals to arrest them.
