Gangsters wearing police uniform kill 6 people


Gangsters have invaded Mombasa County again. Six people were last week killed following a series of attacks allegedly conducted by an armed gang wearing police uniform.

Gangsters are reported to be operating on a motorbike.

Kisauni sub-county Commissioner Kipchumba Ruto confirmed the incidences. The four were shot dead last week while a man and his wife were murdered on Thursday night at Kasarani area.

Mr. Ruto added that the gang then returned on Friday night and killed two more people at Kidgaya in Junda ward, Kisauni constituency.

Kisauni MP Ali Mbogo held a presser saying that the Police alone cannot efficiently eradicate crime in the area.

Mr. Mbogo proposed that some youth be armed to help in tackling criminal happenings.

Commissioner Ruto supported the creation of Kenya Police Reservists in Kisauni. He said he will raise the matter in the next security meeting in Mombasa County to propose locals in Kisauni be armed.
