Three people died in ethnically motivated clashes in the Mathare slum, Nairobi. Two were burnt to death while the third person was hacked to death. A fourth person was nursing serious injuries at a hospital after he was partially burnt. According to witnesses, one person from the two communities that clashed was stabbed in the morning. He then went and reported the matter to the police who arrested a suspect from the other tribe and handcuffed him. The other tribe then attacked the suspect while still handcuffed and set him ablaze. This then resulted in the clashes that have been going on for the better part of the day as angry youth blocked the road.
