Nkaisery who was accompanied by Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet and Energy Cabinet Secretary Charles Keter urged the communities to live in harmony.
Security has been beefed in Olpusimoru in Narok county following clashes between the Maasai and Kipsigis communities.
Police were to quell the violence between the two communities that was sparked after what is believed to have been a cattle rustling incident in which livestock believed to belong to the Maasai was stolen.
Maasai herders are believed to have pursued their livestock into the neighboring community but were shot and killed prompting the flare up in violence.
Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet is expected in Narok County to help restore calm and tranquil in the area.
Over 100 police officers drawn from the General Service Unit and Administration Police have been deployed to the area to quell the violence that has continued since Wednesday when it erupted.
