After weeks of hostilities between herders from Kenya and Uganda along the troubled border, calm has been restored. A joint security team from both countries has increased patrols to reduce tensions, which had resulted in violence, killings, and displacements.

Leaders from the conflicting communities, accompanied by Kenyan troops and other security forces, convened a peace meeting at the Amermer border point, a recent battleground.

Former West Pokot Governor John Lonyangauo, who experienced livestock theft, urged residents to refrain from engaging in retaliatory attacks. He also advocated for the establishment of more border peace schools as a long-term solution to the banditry problem.
