Ethnic conflicts in Kenya occur frequently, although most are minor skirmishes.

These include:
  • Colonial Policies.
  • Political Instigation.
  • Availability of Land.
  • Access to water and pasture resources.
  • Loss of traditional grazing land.
  • Cattle raiding in Kenya.
  • Lack of alternative sources of livelihood.
  • Fears of terrorists

Ethnic conflicts in Kenya occur frequently, although most are minor skirmishes. A significant increase in the severity of such conflicts between the various ethnic groups inhabiting the country was witnessed after the introduction of multi-party politics in the early 1990s, especially during the 2007–08 Kenyan crisis.[1] Major conflicts have also led to exoduses of ethnic minority communities with roots in other geographical areas.
