Their latest confrontation occurred at Nyakembene Market in South Mugirango which left many people including school children injured.

It was then that Education CS Ezekiel Machogu invited the two for a reconciliation meeting but the governor rejected it.

However, he bulged to Gusii elders and held a consultative meeting that also extended to a discussion of matters development in the region.

The elders, including former Kisii Senator Prof Sam Ongeri, former Bobasi MP Stephen Manoti, and former South Mugirango MP Manson Oyongo, among others, were involved in this peace process.

The elders unanimously chose Dr Stephen Omende Omenge to chair the urgently constituted body for multi-sectoral meetings geared towards reconciling the leaders.
