Former Mt Elgon MP Fred Kapondi yesterday accused current MP John Serut of inciting the community against each other. The two leaders were at a National Cohesion and Integration Commission forum in Nakuru town. Leaders from Mt Elgon attended the forum to ongoing wrangles.
"You are not driving any development," Kapondi told Serut.
NCIC chairman Francis ole Kaparo intervened to stop the leaders' spat.
"Mt Eldon residents are not the property of Serut, Kapondi, Kisiero or any other leader hence leaders should show servant leadership instead of propelling war." he said.
Kaparo accused the two leaders of being the problem. He said they should offer services instead of being warlords. The two-day forum is expected to end today, with NCIC set to give its solution to the problem....Click here to view copies of Mt. Elgon NCIC Resolutions.

Who are the Sabaots?
The Sabaots tribe is one of the nine sub-tribes of the Kenyan Kalenjin tribe. The other eight Kalenjin sub-tribes are: Sengwer, Tugen, Terik, Keiyo, Kipsigis, Pokot, Marakwet and Nandi who live in the Rift Valley Province of Kenya. The Sabaots are the authentic Kalenjin tribe and hence they are commonly referred as "Kapkugo" by the other Kalenjin sub-tribes. The Sabaot community is comprised of six sub-dialects namely: 1.Bookok (Book), 2. Somek, 3. Mosopishok (Mosop), 4. Konjak (Kony), 5. Bong'omek (Bungoma), and 6. Sabinjak (Sebei)........click here to read more.
