Indigenous Democracy:
Traditional Conflict Resolution Mechanisms
(Pokot, Turkana, Samburu and Marakwet communities)
In 2003 ITDG EA conducted a study on traditional conflict resolution mechanisms as practiced by the Pokot, Turkana, Samburu and Marakwet pastoralists and agro-pastoralists communities in Kenya. This study was funded by USAID/Kenya and East Africa Cross-Border Biodiversity Project (EACBBP). Abstract This publication details the indigenous methods of conflict resolution among the Pokot, Tukana, Samburu, and Marakwet communities of North Rift Kenya. Traditional conflict resolution structures are closely bound with socio- political and economic realities of the lifestyles of the African communities. These conflict resolution structures are rooted in the culture and history of African people, and are in one way or another unique to each community. The overriding legitimacy of indigenous conflict resolution structures amongst these communities is striking. The publication outlines scarce and unequal access to natural resources and power, ethnic mistrust (ethnocentrism), inadequate state structures, border tensions and proliferation of illicit arms into the hands of tribal chiefs, warlords and fellow tribesmen as some of the causes of inter-ethnic conflicts in northern Kenya.

Peace committees in joint learning tour
In a celebrated break from known tradition of ethnic hostilities and enmity amongst the pastoralist Turkana, Pokot, Marakwet and Samburu communities, peace committee members from the said communities took part in a one-week learning tour of Eastern and North Eastern provinces of Kenya. The visits were held from 2nd to 10th August 2003. Previously, it was seldom for members of the said communities to engage in a constructive discussion, drink and dine together or even sleep in the same room! This particular tour took conflict pundits by suprise as at the end of the trip you could not differentiate a Pokot from Marakwet, Samburu or Turkana and vice versa save for the cultural regalia and dialect of the respective communities. The tour commenced with a meeting between Samburu District Peace Committee, Samburu District Security Committee and the visitors from Tapach (West Pokot), Kapyegon (Marakwet) and Loima (Turkana) peace committees. They discussed several issues ranging from peace committees collaboration, the problem of illicit arms, cattle raids and wildlife conservation. Mr Moses Lenairoshi, Samburu District Peace Committee chairman, underscored the role of indigenous peace pacts citing the peaceful relations and military alliance between the Pokot and Samburu communities that was hatched hundreds of years ago. He also challenged the other committee members to emulate such arrangements if cattle raiding in the north rift is to be something of the past.

News Updates for Stephen Ouma
08/12 :: The Story of Stephen Ouma The Story of Stephen Ouma :: 08/12 The call of a missionary is a call of sacrifice, whether it is an American going overseas to minister in a foreign land or a believer witnessing to another people group in his own country. This is the case with Pastor Stephen Ouma. Stephen felt a distinct call to the Pokot tribe when he did his week of mission training during his time at Moffat Bible College in Kijabe, Kenya. After graduating, he gave up a comfortable job in his home area to come to this hostile Pokot/Muslim community.
Stephen will be working among about 3,000 Pokot and about 200 Somali Muslims, as well as a couple dozen government workers in the town of Tangulbei, in northern Kenya. The Tangulbei Church where Pastor Stephen is had been struggling to grow due to the difficulty in reaching these people. So the church district council felt it needed a fully trained pastor. This church was built by NDI partners in 2000, and Stephen has been supported the last few years by NDI partners as well.
Pastor Stephen shares from his heart the burden he has for the Pokot people:
At the time the Spirit of the Lord touched us to come and work with the Pokots, I can't imagine when that call was easy to us. I delayed it for some times because I thought it could be my own ambitions, and I could think of other people who are better than me to respond to it. I had many excuses but the Spirit convicted us that we were the right people to come to work in AIC Tangulbei and here we are. He opened the door of our ministry in Pokot and has never forsaken us. Anyway, we have many challenges (I don't want to call them problems because the devil might think he has power to thwart the work of God). This has been because we have gone cross-cultural, but thank God for we are on the winning side.

The Rights and Concerns of Indigenous People
As defined by Merriam-Webster Online, Indigenous refers to those- “(people) having originated in and being produced, growing, living, or occurring naturally in a particular region or environment”. The United Nations (UN) declared the1990’s as the Decade of the Indigenous Peoples, with the purpose of helping the native persons of the world to declare their natural rights and distinctiveness, and also to assist them in their fight against subjugation and the denial of these rights. The UN also brought to light the issues, concerns, and challenges faced by indigenous peoples and their concerns with their collective futures. Indigenous people have long been labeled by Westerners as Indians, natives, savages and primitives and have long been taken advantage of because they are deemed inferior beings because it appears to us that they are uncivilized for living simple lives or even different lives than most in the developed world are accustomed to us (The Origins of Indigenism, 4). Indigenous people can be found all over the world, from the more famous one here in North America, such as the native tribes that previously existed in large numbers before the coming of Columbus and the pilgrims.

Four Arenas of Mission Involvement
The book of Acts records Jesus’ last appearance to His disciples, including His final words before returning to heaven: "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth" (Acts 1:8).
1. Jerusalem: reaching those near us who have a similar cultural background
2. Judea: reaching those further away who have a similar cultural background
3. Samaria: reaching near us of a different cultural background
4. The Ends of the Earth: reaching those far from us of a different cultural background
Meeting the Acts 1:8 Challenge
One word in Acts 1:8 is often overlooked, but shouldn’t be. Jesus says that we will receive power to be "witnesses in Jerusalem AND in Judea AND Samaria AND to the ends of the earth." That little word "AND" indicates that God wants us to see our mission challenges in all these arenas—not just in one or two, but in all of them.

Institute for Security Studies
INTRODUCTION This article focuses on two aspects of the Kenyan socio-political arena, and explains how these provide a useful setting for the President to manipulate the political process to his advantage. The first of these features may be described as a system of personal rule; the second as the ethnicisation of politics. These act as the context within which Moi, by instigating and exacerbating conflict, could and can control the political process. The argument is made here that, in so far as this continues to be the nature of politics in the country, Moi or any eventual successor, can choose to use the same means to retain political power virtually at will. CHRONOLOGY OF VIOLENCE During the course of the December 1992 elections, there was a lull in fighting after which conflict restarted and escalated, now encompassing the Molo, Narok, Pokot, Londiani, Elburgon and Burnt Forest areas of the Rift Valley. The perpetrators of this latest violence expanded to include the Maasai and Pokot ethnic groups. These attacks were aimed primarily at the Kikuyu. After another lull in fighting, there was renewed violence in March 1994. The Kalenjin again fought with the Kikuyu in the Rift Valley and Burnt Forest areas. This was followed by the forced eviction of Kikuyu by the Maasai in the Enoospukia region. In 1995, in the Mai Mahiu area of Naivasha, fighting broke out that left 300 000 people displaced.
