Panic over Mungiki raid threats

Tension gripped Murang’a and Nyandarua following fresh threats of Mungiki raids.

Barely days after an uneasy calm returned in Central Province after last week’s five-day mayhem, security officers in the two districts were on high alert after word went round that Mungiki members would strike.

Yesterday, police patrolled Nyahururu town and its outskirts, while businesses were opened late.

Nyandarua OCPD, Mr Amos Ojwang’, said they had received information of a morning attack.

“We did not take the reports lightly and that is why we deployed anti-riot police on patrol. We cannot allow Mungiki to cause mayhem in the town,” he said.

In Murang’a, police were on high alert on Tuesday night after receiving reports that the sect members were calling on traders to close shop.

District security committees in Murang’a North and Murang’a South ordered police units to be alert.

Murang’a South DC, Mr Maalim Mohamed, said patrols had been intensified to prevent disruption on the roads.

Meanwhile, some Mungiki leaders have claimed that a Nairobi coordinator has gone missing. They said Dandora leader, Mr Alfred Njoroge Gichere, had been missing since Tuesday.
