Tension remains high in Kiamaiko Mathare after inter-religious conflicts that erupted in the area on Friday that left one person dead.
Church elders and Muslim elders have been making endless peace meetings in church and mosques to quell down the growing tension in the area.
According to Chege Ado an area resident says the conflicts first erupted between Burji Muslims who accused Burji Christian for undermining them .
Fighting then broke between the two factions before more Christians and Muslims joined.
‘‘The problem is Burji we don’t have much issues, let those Muslim Burji accept and tolerate their Christian colleagues…if this is not realized we are not solving anything..As we speak Muslims elders and Christians have been holding meeting to restore peace.’’ Ado said.
They have also blamed the police for using excessive force to disperse rivals especially on Friday.
Two churches were torched , mosques properties were destroyed and scores injured.
Meanwhile the police have tightened daily patrols as they also hunt perpetrators .
