Abstract: This study examined the social?economic impact of the trans - border ethnic conflict in Muhoroni between the Luo, Nandi, Kipsigis, and Gusii. This study was carried out in Muhoroni Sub - County and Tinderet Sub - county Kenya. Muhoroni is a border area predominantly between two tribes that stay along this borderline, the Luo and the Nandi. The border along Muhoroni over the years has continued to experience conflict for a prolonged period of time and as a result has undermined the social fabric which is the bedrock of inter - communal cooperation for economic development. The trans - border ethnic conflict has resulted in devastating effects on the social and economic livelihoods of communities living along the borderline in Muhoroni. Villages and institutions along the border have suffered socially and economically as the antagonism between the communities along the border persisted. The study also provide some policy recommendations aimed atcreating stability region.
