Some majority community in Kerio Valley just violated the rights of the Sengwer ethnic minority.
Those who attacked the Sengwer community members had access to guns. See evidence above – cartilages. Fortunately, no one was harmed by the bullets and no one was burnt when the houses were torched.
A puppy walks besides what used to be a home for a Sengwer family. Now it’s a pile of ash.
Woman salvages the remains of her household goods after houses were burnt in Malon, Sengwer territory.
“Really as Sengwer community we suffered so much, Pokots attacking us in the upper side Kapkok glades, Marakwets in the lower glades, that is Kaptirpai and Koropwen and KFS in both glades…what have we done as Sengwer Community to the government and our neighbors really?” complains a member of the Sengwer community.
More houses were burnt yesterday at 2:00 am.
We call upon those oppressing the Sengwer community to stop and desist. It is a human rights violation.
