“VOICES FROM THE GROUND”
Scorched Earth Policy leaves Villagers out in the Cold in Baringo, Kenya.
Scared. That’s how the residents of some villages in Baringo North in Kenya’s Rift Valley feel, even as the Kenyan government deployed security agencies to quell the violence that has been witnessed in the area as a result of inter-clan clashes. Although there’s a lull in the fighting, the sad faces one encounters on the ground speak of a brutal police operation that seems not to distinguish between the innocent and criminals.
Africa Uncensored crew visited the affected villages and saw burnt houses, animal carcasses riddled with bullets, and vulnerable families that sleep out in the open.
The fighting in Baringo North involves the Pokot against the Tugen, two pastoral communities that have been at each other’s throats for a while.
At least five people lost their lives in the recent flare-up of violence in the restive region, but will a shoot-to-kill order issued as a response to the fighting there by Kenya’s Deputy President work?
