“Since February we have been living in peace but yesterday I arrived home from work at around 6 pm and we stayed there with my two children and a neighbour, a 70-year-old woman,” Florence said adding that they were living in fear after an attack the previous night that is why they had invited their neighbour.
She said they retired to bed at around midnight but before they could settle to sleep, a group of armed men came and accessed the house by destroying the wall asking why they had occupied their land. Nduku said she escaped as the attackers concentrated on her two sons and her Neighbour. When she returned the next day she found her son 18 and their neighbour dead.
