Six killed by armed gang wearing police uniform in Mombasa

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

Confirming the incident, Kisauni sub-county Commissioner Kipchumba Ruto said the gangsters operating on motorbikes murdered four people, including a man and his wife, 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.

Speaking during a security meeting following the killings, Kisauni MP Ali Mbogo said police alone cannot effectively eliminate crime in the area, further proposing that some youth be armed to help in tackling criminal activities.

The legislator also asked intelligence personnel to probe the sudden upsurge in insecurity saying “there is more than meets the eye.”

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