Marsabit chief burned during public meeting

In December last year, a chief in Marsabit was burned to death during a public meeting.

Dirip Gombo Location Chief George Biqa had been attacked during the burial of one of the two Kenya Police Reservist officers who were killed in a bandit attack in the area.

Gombo, was ambushed by people who had branded him a traitor as they descended on him with kicks and blows before setting him a blaze.

Reports indicated that the community from which Gombo hails from had been angered when the chief attended a function led by Labour Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yattani to officially recognise the Wayu community as Kenyans.
