Tensions between communities from Isiolo and Garissa over water and pasture continue to persist.

Last year, there bloody and deadly confrontations between the members of the warring communities.

Elders have been involved in delicate talks aimed at addressing the tensions so that the pastoralists can coexist.

Young Members of County Assemblies in the two counties have been engaging in peace campaigns that appear to be yielding fruits.

''Our elders have been involved in negotiations to defuse the tensions and seek a way forward. The Korane administration was worked really hard towards a peace deal with Isiolo,'' Kamal Abdul said.
