Three people were killed at Ndeffo village in Molo in what is believed to be a revenge mission over the post polls violence.
Confirming the incident area DC Muhamud Salim said several houses were torched in the clash between the two communities.
Salim said trouble started when a member of one community ambushed his neighbour and killed him while the second person was shot with an arrow after members of the dead man’s community raided the village where the assailant resided.
The third person was hacked to death by irate residents.
Meanwhile one woman is admitted in a Nakuru hospital in critical condition after being attacked by unknown assailants during the clashes.
In Eldoret, police have dismissed claims that members of the outlawed Mungiki sect were harrassing matatu operators.
The matatu operators had Thursday marched through the streets in protest over alleged harassment by members of the outlawed sect.
The operators who later converged at the Municipal Gardens appealed to police to beef up security in the region, saying a group of suspected Mungiki members armed with pangas were harassing motorists at the Sosiani stage and Annex-KCC route.
However, Eldoret OCPD Muinde Kioko dismissed the claims, saying it was a gimmick to stop competition from other transporters.
Kioko called on stakeholders in the transport industry to stop inciting others.
Eldoret Mayor, Samuel Ruto promised to co-operate with the police in their investigations into allegations of the sect’s activities.
Ruto urged residents and matatu crew to focus on healing and reconciliation instead of creating more differences.
