Livestock raiders in Kenya's Baringo County killed seven people on Wednesday morning (June 18th) and stole thousands of livestock, Kenya's The Standard reported.
The suspected Turkana raiders armed with AK-47 rifles stole 15,000 goats and sheep, 900 camels and 300 donkeys in the incident that happened at around 5 am.
Less than 24 hours later, suspected Pokot raiders attacked Mukutani village in Baringo South and burned houses and stole unknown number of livestock in what is believed to be a retaliation raid in a clan-based conflict.
No deaths or injuries have been reported, Baringo County Police Commander Hassan Barua told Kenya's Daily Nation.
"We have dispatched officers to the area to deal with the situation," he said. "However, calm has been restored."
Silale County Assembly member Nelson Lotela called for immediate reinforcements to prevent further violence.
"People are living in fear as the raiders are said to be planning another attack," he said.
