Marsabit County! Peaceful at Last
Marsabit County has been, in the recent past affected by inter-clan conflicts especially among the Rendile, Borana, Gabra and Sololo communities. The Commission therefore took an initiative to mediate the peace process in Marsabit to arrive at a lasting peace agreement. The mediation efforts led to the signing of 3 major agreements; ‘the Marsabit Ceasefire Agreement, the Boma Declaration and the Boma Peace Agreement.’ Major participants in the mediations were clan elders and political leaders from all the communities.
To establish the status of implementation of the issues highlighted in some of the peace agreements and to monitor the current status of cohesion in the communities, the Commission conducted four peace meetings with all the communities from 13th November to 24th November, 2015.
