The mobs went house to house, looking for certain people. Grace Kakai, a police commander in Naivasha, said a large crowd of Kikuyus chased a group of Luos through a slum, trapped them in a house, blocked the doors and set the house afire. Police found 19 bodies huddled in one room, and Ms. Kakai said some of the children’s bodies were so badly burned that they could not be identified.
“All I can say is that they were school age,” she said.
In the past few days, many Kikuyus have organized into militias, saying they are now ready for revenge.
