Summary

In May to November 2015, fighting erupted between the farmers from Mundri West and East counties and cattle keepers who brought their cattle from different parts of the country for grazing in the Counties. These tensions and additional conflict from February to March 2016 resulted in the displacement of civilians in Mundri town into neighboring villages and other locations. Continued escalated tensions displaced nearly 30,000 individuals from Mundri West County and 20,000 individuals from locations in Mundri East. The most affected areas in Mundri East include Lanyi, Buogyi, Jambo, Lozoh and Lakamadi.
