A team of detectives dispatched to the Tana Delta is pursuing suspected masterminds of the violence that has left nearly 200 people dead.
This follows key information from the suspects who were arrested after the Nduru and Kibusu village attacks last week where 24 people were killed.
Security personnel conducting operations in the district said the six suspects gave them crucial leads that will help in arresting the masterminds.
The General Service Unit commanding the Tana Delta operations Ronald Opili said they hope to arrest the masterminds in order to help restore calm after four months of violence.
Speaking on the phone from Tana Delta yesterday, he said the detectives are currently on the ground pursuing the suspects from the Pokomo and Orma communities.
"We got crucial information from the suspects arrested after Nduru and Kibusu attacks, detectives are now working on it and we expect a major breakthrough in the near future to end the violence," said Opili.
Currently, he said, said tensions has eased and there have been no fresh attacks since the Kibusu ambush.
