Church leaders from in Baringo want political seats and resources in the area shared equitably between members of the Tugen and Pokot communities.
The clerics attributed the soaring relation between members of the two warring communities to unequal distribution of resources. They asked political leadership to ensure equity for the sake of unity and development in the county.
Speaking on behalf of the clerics, Bishop Daniel Chemon of the Full Gospel Churches of Kenyan, said the are worried the strain relation between the majority Tugen and minority Pokot community over the sharing of elective seats will worsen the security situation in the region.
"If we decides to go as by the number of votes in the sharing of seats, one community was likely to be locked out of the sharing of the cake, thus leading to hatred, mistrust and animosity among the warring communities in the vast county ," stated Bishop Chemon.
