A sample size of 50 respondents was determined through purposive and random sampling methods. Data was collected from primary and secondary sources using questionnaires ~nd interviews. After collecting data, the researcher organized well-answered questionnaire, data was edited and sorted for the next stage. The data was presented in tabular form, pie charts and bar graphs with frequencies and percentages. The study found out that 4% of the respondents strongly disagreed that major conflicts arise from cross boarder differences, 14% of the respondents disagreed, 18% of the respondents were undecided, 44% agreed and the remaining 20% of the respondents strongly agreed. This implies that majority of the respondents were of the view that most conflicts in the cornmunfty are caused by cross boarder differences. This has ‘been very common for instance Karamaj ongs often fight with their neighbors over issues of cross borders. The study concludes that the K4rirnojong youth believe that when they raid animals from a rival tribe, they are only taking away what belongs to them. The youth believe that the most practical way to get back what was taken is application of some excess force which in its performative act is considered a rite of passage; to raid means coming of age. The study recommends that there is need for provision of education to all so as to fight the illiteracy levels which proved to be one of the challenges hindering effective implementation of CSOs operations.
