Kenya: Inter-communal conflict by district (Jan 2012 - Feb 2013)

Originally published


Since January 2012, 515 people have been killed, 349 injured and at least 116,000 displaced from their homes as a result of inter-communal conflict. Localised clashes have been attributed to competition over land and resources, the ongoing process of political devolution and the upcoming elections. The most affected provinces have been North Eastern, Eastern, and Coast Provinces, where competition over scarce resources can be particularly high. These aggregated figures are verified and conservative estimates based on reports we receive from our field offices, the Kenya Red Cross and other humanitarian and development partners working in Kenya.
