Deputy President William Ruto initiated the signing of the Chesegon Peace Accord among the communities of West Pokot, Elgeyo Marakwet and Baringo in a quest for lasting peace in the region.

Ruto took the move after security forces disarmament process failed to end the conflict among the communities.

Speaking at Chesogon Trading Centre on Wednesday, Ruto urged leaders to put aside their political differences and embrace things that bring people together.

He added that politics, oppression, and inequality has been a recipe for conflict in the region.

“Ensuring equal access to resources, economic opportunities and peace education in schools to sensitise youth on inclusion and cultural diversity will foster unity and progress in society,” said Ruto.

To him, the occasion has set the stage for unity, transformation and development, courtesy of the local leaders, church and communities, who agreed to live in harmony.

Chesogon market was reopened during the process after being deserted for long due to insecurity in the region.

The communities agreed to shun hatred, animosity, banditry and embrace peace in their neighbourhoods.
