Kenya: Anglican Bishop Delays Tana Delta Trip

Eleven people have been killed in another suspected revenge attack in Kibusu village Tana Delta region.   ( Resource: Scores Dead in Revenge Attacks in Kenya's Tana Delta

ACK Bishop Julius Kalu yesterday cancelled a trip to Tana River, following renewed violence that killed seven people.

Kalu, alongside other clergies from the Anglican church, had planned to distribute food and other items to the displaced families.

"We were leaving Mombasa when I called the DC to inform him that we were on the way, but he said we had to cancel our plans because there was tension again and scores of people had died," he said.

Huria programme officer Eric Karisa Mgoja said the clashes may lower the public's confidence in the police.

He asked the Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo to formulate a way to end the attacks.
